Democrat bill would give federal workers paid parental leave
from The Washington Post
Federal employees would be eligible for six weeks of paid leave for purposes related to the birth or adoption of a child, under legislation introduced by a group of House Democrats. President Barack Obama two weeks ago called on Congress to enact that benefit — which would be paid "administrative" leave that would not be charged against either sick leave or annual leave time —while separately ordering agencies to advance up to six weeks of paid sick leave for those purposes under existing authority.
