“We created Fairygodboss to improve the lives and workplaces for women through transparency. Our website hosts a crowdsourced paid parental leave database, which helps workers learn more about the types of leave they can expect from various employers. As our database shows, a growing number of employers are offering paid family leave; they recognize that it not only supports employees, but also boosts the bottom line. However, we cannot simply rely on progressive employers to do the right thing — even when it is likely to improve their own employee retention and turnover. Too many workers miss out on the health, economic, and social benefits of paid leave because their employers don’t offer leave. That’s why it’s more important than ever to continue fighting for comprehensive paid leave legislation. The FAMILY Act — which is modeled after successful state programs — would no doubt meet the needs of the modern workforce so that people won’t have to choose between getting paid and supporting their loved ones.”
