Family & Medical Leave
Originally drafted by the National Partnership and enacted in 1993, the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) has been used 100 million times by American workers to take job-protected time off to care for loved ones or recover from illness. In 2008, we helped advance the first-ever expansion of the FMLA for families of wounded veterans and challenged Department of Labor regulations that made it harder for some workers to access FMLA benefits. Today, we are working to repair the damage done by the Bush Administration, expand the FMLA to cover even more workers, and push for paid leave. More »
Paid Sick Days
Nearly half of private-sector workers in the U.S. have no paid sick days, and 94 million working people do not have paid sick days to care for a sick child or family member. This means that American workers are being forced to choose between their loved ones and their paychecks when illness strikes. To date, paid sick days legislation has only been enacted in San Francisco and Washington, DC and passed by an overwhelming majority in Milwaukee but there is no federal legislation for paid sick days. There is a solution on the floor of Capitol Hill: the Healthy Families Act. More »
Judge & Supreme Court
Justice matters — and the National Partnership has a long history of monitoring Supreme Court and other judicial nominees as well as tracking Supreme Court cases that are of supreme importance to women and families. Many of the rights we rely on would not be in place without the rulings the Supreme Court has made throughout history, and we engage in those cases that involve discrimination, sexual harassment, a woman’s right to make her own reproductive health decisions, equal and full application of the Family & Medical Leave Act, and other critical issues. In 2009, we endorsed and fully supported the confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor — it was a proud moment for our nation. More »
