Lawmakers Agree on Paid Family Leave for Federal Workers

December 11th, 2019

Lawmakers agreed on the terms to approve paid family leave for federal workers after the birth of a newborn or introduction of an adopted child into their homes. Federal workers would be entitled to 12 weeks of paid leave to tend to their infant or adopted child, which is currently offered to military personnel. The program would begin in October 2020 if it becomes law. The proposed family leave legislation for federal workers is part of the National Defense Authorization Act, which enables defense spending. On Wednesday, December 11, the House will vote on the bill, which will be forwarded to the Senate, and then to President Trump for his final approval. Although some lawmakers hoped to extend the bill to cover caregivers who tend to ill family members or relatives in need of other types of support, they will continue to fight for broader coverage in the future.

A handful of states provide their employees 12 weeks of paid family leave including New Jersey that extended the policy this June to companies who staff 30 employees or more. Paid leave allows workers a balance, so that they can remain secure about their employment status but also take care of the newest member or members of their families. Employees who gave birth, but experienced medical complications or other health issues will have enough time to heal and return to work without any trepidation.
