Biden pressured to include paid family leave in COVID relief package
By Jonathan Easley - 01/12/21 09:18 AM EST

A national advocacy group will send letters to top members of President-elect Joe Biden’s economic and domestic policy teams on Tuesday pressuring the new administration to include paid family and sick leave in the coronavirus economic recovery package that Biden is expected to release this week.

“The Biden-Harris administration has made caregiving and the caregiving economy central to the nation’s economic recovery plans,” writes Corinne Roller, the legislative director for PL+US. “Now is the time to seize the bipartisan momentum for paid leave to provide economic security to families and businesses, protect public health, and support our nation’s economic recovery.”

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) included up to 10 weeks of paid family and medical leave for some workers at two-thirds of the employee’s regular pay rate, although that rule expired on Dec. 31.
