With divided government in Congress, gridlock reigns for most employment-law bills. One bill that has a slim chance: the Parental Bereavement Act.

It would amend the FMLA to allow employees to take FMLA leave after the death of a child. The leave could only be taken in one block, unless the employer allowed the worker to take intermittent leave.

Odds for passage: about 25%.
