Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, D–N.Y., has reintroduced legislation that would require more employers to provide unpaid leave to employees who need to care for themselves or a family member. TheEnhancement Act would extend protections to workers in companies with more than 25 employees.
The current law applies only to organizations with 50 or more employees.
Beyond extending unpaid leave rights, the Family and Medical Leave Enhancement Act would provide up to 24 hours per year of unpaid “parental involvement and family wellness” leave, which will allow parents and grandparents to go to parent-teacher conferences or take their children, grandchildren or other family members to regular medical or dental appointments.
Employees would have to provide at least seven days’ notice “or as much notice as is practicable” before taking parental involvement and family wellness leave.
