Paid Family Leave: Helping Workers Balance Career and Caregiving Commitments - California Budget & Policy Center
It’s been 15 years since workers in California became eligible for payments through the state’s paid family leave program that helps people take time off from work to welcome a new child to the family or care for a sick family member. But many Californians – particularly workers earning low wages – are unable to utilize this benefit, even though they contribute to it.
