Florida's family leave policies don't help new parents: Part II

Earlier this week, we began a discussion about a new report published by the National Partnership for Women & Families. It grades each state on how well its family-leave laws and local programs benefit new parents when they require time off from work.

Florida's family leave policies don't help new parents: Part I

We have often written about the importance of job protection when employees must take time off due to pressing life circumstances. One of the most important legal protections in this regard is the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which allows employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for personal health or family reasons.

Major insurer pays $17,000 to fired employee for FMLA violation

Last week we wrote about a disappointing Supreme Court decision that could negatively affect workers in Florida and across the country who are considered state employees.

FMLA may soon be updated to benefit more Americans

Americans work hard, and for many of us, work is central to our identities. And while most of us are able to balance work and family life, there are times when family must take priority. That's why the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was adopted nearly two decades ago.
