Senate Labor & Industrial Relations Committee Hearing on SB 63, the New Parent Leave Act

Why we need SB 63:

California is a pioneer when it comes to offering job-protected leave, but only for parents working for large companies with 50 or more employees. A 2011 report showed that 2 out of 5 employees who were eligible for Paid Family Leave did not apply because they feared losing their job or other negative consequences at work.

What SB 63 offers:

This New Parent Leave Act would provide up to 12 weeks of job-protected leave for parents and caregivers so that they can bond with a newborn, newly adopted or foster child, or take care of a seriously ill loved one. This bill would benefit up to 2.7 million more California workers, but only affect 6% of businesses.
