Webinar Recording: State PFML Comparisons and Prospects for a Federal Solution

Jai HookerResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


Understanding statutory paid family leave (PFL) and paid family and medical leave (PFML) mandates — which continue to evolve and proliferate around the country — is no easy task. Legal requirements often vary dramatically from one jurisdiction to the next, making one-size-fits-all policies impractical and often ineffective.

To help you better understand the paid leave landscape, we examined the existing PFL and PFML mandates. We compared each mandate across select core topics such as the length of benefits, amount of pay provided to employees, funding mechanisms, covered reasons for use, and more. In addition, this session provided information about private plan options under existing PFL/PFML laws and thoughts on federal paid family and medical leave prospects in 2023.
