Study: Paid Family Leave Law Benefiting California Workers
California's Paid Family Leave Law, which took effect in 2004, has created important economic, social and health benefits for workers in the state, according to a new study by researchers at the Center for Economic and Policy Research, City University of New York and UCLA. The law allows eligible workers to take up to six weeks off and receive 55% of their usual earnings while caring for a new child or a seriously ill family member.
