2013 Proposed Budget Will Help States Provide Paid Family Leave, Says White House

Leave a comment

According to a White House statement, “Too many families must make the painful choice between the care of their families and a paycheck they desperately need.  The Family and Medical Leave Act allows workers to take job-protected unpaid time  off, but millions of families can’t afford to use unpaid leave. A handful of states have enacted policies to offer paid family leave, but more states should have the chance.”

To support this effort, the proposed 2013 budget would allocate a $5 million State Paid Leave Fund within the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to provide technical assistance and support to states that want to establish paid-leave programs.

The proposed budget preserves resources added to worker protection agencies under the Obama administration and includes $1.8 billion for these agencies.

The budget document also includes a $6 million request for DOL’s Wage and Hour Division for increased enforcement of the FMLA and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
