NARFE participates in news conference on Paid Parental Leave bill

from NARFE

NARFE President Richard G. Thissen joined congressional leaders at a press conference Monday at the U.S. Capitol announcing a new bill to provide six weeks of paid leave to federal employees for the birth, adoption or foster placement of a child. The Federal Employees Paid Parental Leave Act was introduced by U.S. Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, D-N.Y. "More and more private employers around the world are offering parents paid time off so they can take care of their newborns," Thissen said. "However, America is the only industrialized nation whose civil service employees do not receive a single week of paid parental leave after the birth or adoption of a child." He urged Congress to support federal employees and enact the bill swiftly. The press release is available here. more
