There is a growing body of evidence that shows paid leave is the right policy for workers, families, businesses and the country, but misconceptions and unfounded concerns can threaten progress.
ISSUE BRIEF | The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case King v. Burwell, which will determine whether premium tax credits, as defined by Section 36B of the Internal Revenue Code, may be issued to consumers who purchase health coverage in the federally facilitated marketplace (FFM)
A growing number of consumers are embracing electronic health records (EHRs), and the significant boost in online access to health information is increasing patient engagement in their care. In the last year, more than four in five patients with online access to their health records (86 percent) used their online records at least once – and more than half (55 percent) used them three or more times a year. Those are among the findings from a study released by the National Partnership for Women & Families.
Nearly every stakeholder recognizes that greater patient centeredness and patient engagement are essential to the “Triple Aim” of federal health reform: improving care, improving health and reducing cost.

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), quality health insurance is now more accessible to women and families. More than eight million Americans have signed up for health coverage through health insurance marketplaces since October 2013.
Prior to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the cost of health insurance placed a particular burden on lower-income women who needed health care services but often struggled to pay insurance premiums and the out-of-pocket costs of care.
Detailed summaries of state and local paid sick days campaigns, activity and legislation.
FACT SHEET | Studies of the nation's three paid family leave programs demonstrate how well paid leave policies work for workers, families and businesses.
CHART | A detailed summary of existing paid sick days laws.
FACT SHEET | Women make up nearly half of the U.S. workforce and are the primary or co-breadwinners in two-thirds of families. But our nation’s public policies don’t reflect this reality.
FACT SHEET | Nationally, on average, a woman who holds a full-time, year-round job is paid $39,157 per year while a man who holds a full-time, year-round job is paid $50,033 per year. This means that, overall, women in the United States are paid 78 cents for every dollar paid to men.
On average, women use the health care system to a greater extent than men, and thus stand to benefit more from greater access to their own health information and electronic tools that help them manage their health and coordinate their care.
The amici argue that denying pregnant workers job modifications that are granted to others similar in their ability or inability violates the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and contravenes sound health, economic and social policy.
A growing body of evidence assessing existing laws shows that paid sick days make business and economic sense.
In 2014, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will make it easier for millions of women to find and enroll in a more affordable health plan that best meets their needs and the needs of their families.
Women of color, many of whom have unique health issues or are disproportionately underserved by the current health-care system, have much to gain under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
