H.B. 156 Family Leave Amendments by Rep. Weight (D), allows Executive Branch and Higher Education employees to use 240 hours of paid parental leave based on the birth or adoption of the eligible employee’s child. The leave would run concurrent with the Family Medical Leave Act.
UPEA supports this bill and believes that family leave will help to further the concept of work/life balance.
The bill may be heard in the House Business and Labor Standing Committee this week. UPEA will provide updates as the bill moves through the legislative process.
