Good News on Paid Family Leave: Political and Practical Lessons from New Jersey and California

The New York legislature is now considering a bill that would provide workers with up to 12 weeks of paid family leave. Three other states have already passed similar laws and begun the process of providing benefits to workers caring for new babies or seriously ill family members.  Demos is hosting a discussion of the political and practical lessons New Yorkers can learn from the passage and implementation of paid leave New Jersey and California.

The panel will include CEPR's Eileen Appelbaum and mark the publication of “Business as Usual,” a report she co-authored with Demos' Sharon Lerner, on the experience of employers with New Jersey’s Family Leave Insurance program.  Other speakers include Sherry Leiwant of A Better Balance and Donna Dolan of the New York State Paid Leave Coalition.
