Paid Family Leave Policies

published 3 months ago by UCTV

US Family and Medical Leave Act provides unpaid job-protected leave for qualifying workers. More than 40% of employees don't qualify and low-income workers are less likely to take leave. Dr. Rita Hamad looks at the policy through two case studies and discusses the implications and impact on health. She concludes that paid leave may be an important lever to improve infant and parent health at the population level.
