US Family and Medical Leave Act provides unpaid job-protected leave for qualifying workers. More than 40% of employees don't qualify and low-income workers are less likely to take leave.

She concludes that paid leave may be an important lever to improve infant and parent health at the population level. Recorded on 03/19/2020. (#35591)
