Join WCRC and members of the Paid Family Leave Collaborative, as they present information for workers and advocates on California workers' rights to Paid Family Leave. A little-known law in California, Paid Family Leave can especially help women of color, who may have lower incomes, jobs without paid sick days or paid vacation days, and whose families may be at disproportionate risk for serious health conditions.
The Paid Family Leave Collaborative is comprised of nonprofit legal and labor advocacy organizations working to increase awareness of this law, especially since serious health conditions don't wait till a convenient economic time.
