The Universal Paid Leave Amendment Act has passed!
Huge thanks to the DC Council for support paid leave for all. Our paid family and medical leave program will help the District care for the people we love, get well, and earn the money we need, when life happens.
But we're not done. We need to make sure that the DC implements a strong program.
No one should be forced to make impossible choices between caring for the people we love and earning the money we need. With a paid family and medical leave program in DC we can improve workplace standards and ensure that families have the financial stability they need when life happens!
Being there when your loved ones need you — or when you need you — is not negotiable!
