Paid Family Leave

National Paid Leave For All NOW!

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) passed 30 years ago and guaranteed 12 weeks of unpaid leave each year to working families. Led by the National Partnership for Women & Families, the labor movement fought in coalition with women’s, disability, children’s, religious and senior citizens’ groups. After nine years, politicians finally put good policy ahead of party and passed the FMLA with bipartisan support. Working people in the United States have used the FMLA more than 460 million times since then. But we also recognize that the FMLA is a stepping stone—unpaid leave isn’t good enough.

We’re one of the only countries in the world that has no national paid leave.


Working people deserve better. No one should have to choose between a paycheck or their health and family. So we’ll keep fighting—for paid sick leave, for paid parental leave, and for the dignity and respect working families deserve.
