Family Leave

Family Leave is at the forefront of WeWill's agenda. We often visit Springfield, phone bank, and have events to work with our legislators on passage of Family Leave. There have been various bills held in both the Senate and House, none of which have passed, that we have supported or supported a variation. Below are the key components to Family Leave that we support.
      • Tax deduction based

      • Third party administered

      • 2 year waiting period

      • $600 weekly maximum

      • Graduated benefit based on income with lowest earnings getting 100% benefit down to 40% benefit for higher wage earners

      • Usage of benefits once in 2 year period

      • 13 weeks paid

      • Usage of benefit for caring for children, parents and designated person

This will be a continual effort. If you want to get more involved and help us fight you can volunteer or join our coalition.
