Healthy Families and People Are Part of Main Street Businesses’ Bottom Line
Principles on Paid Family and Medical Leave
Business owners and employees alike experience the need for time to recover from a serious illness, care for a sick loved one, or welcome a new child. Protecting such time is good for business. It strengthens talent recruitment and retention, boosts employee morale and loyalty, and increases productivity. Small businesses lack the scale and capital to offer and administer and/or afford paid leave. We need a national paid family and medical leave social insurance program.
