Paid Parental Leave, Human Capital Reviews and More
By Erich Wagner, Government Executive
Legislation introduced in Congress last week would provide paid leave for federal civilian employees who have or adopt a child for the first time.
The Federal Employees Paid Parental Leave Act (H.R. 6275), introduced by Rep. Barbara Comstock, R-Va., would provide federal workers 12 weeks of paid leave following the birth, adoption or fostering of a child. Currently, feds may take up to 12 weeks of parental leave, but it is unpaid.
