Bringing paid family leave to working adults

Center for Education Excellence & Talent Development

September 17, 2019

This week, the Government & Fiscal Affairs Council and Education & Workforce Development Council held a joint meeting discussing Gov. Gavin Newsom’s proposed expansion of the state’s current paid family leave laws. Newsom created an advisory task force to analyze proposed policy recommendations, which David Rattray, vice president of the Chamber's Center for Education Excellence & Talent Development, sits on. Xiomara Peña from Small Business Majority and Sharon Terman of Legal Aid at Work, who also sit on the governor’s task force, joined Rattray for the discussion. The meeting was also joined by Justin Orenstein of L.A. City Councilmember David Ryu’s office. The governor’s office will review and introduce policy once the task force completes their work in the next few months. The Chamber continues to be involved in conversations at both the state and local levels to ensure a balanced policy is adopted. SEE THE PHOTOS.
