Parental Leave: Are Healthy Families Key to a Healthy Economy?

9

Research shows that when men and women have access to paid family leave, they are better able to maintain their positions in the workforce while taking care of themselves and their families. At the same time, employers save money through less employee turnover, lower retention and training costs, and healthier families. Overall, paid family leave helps parents stay in the work force, leading to greater productivity and better use of talent, and contributing to the country’s economic growth.

But according to a study by the U.S. Department of Labor, only 12 percent of U.S. employees have access to formal paid family leave, and the rate is much lower for low-income employees.
