New Bill Could Give Federal Employees Up to 6 Weeks of Parental Leave

104675

From NFFE:

“Under a new bill introduced in the Senate on Tuesday afternoon, federal employees would receive six weeks of paid parental leave for the birth, adoption or foster placement of a child. The six weeks would be separate from accrued sick and annual leave, and would provide federal employees more flexibility when raising a family. This is the Senate companion bill to Rep. Carolyn Maloney’s (D-NY) Federal Employee Paid Parental Leave Act (FEPPLA) legislation, introduced earlier this year.”
