If you’d like to know more about the Paid Family Leave Act, the Ward One Democrats have organized a panel discussion that will focus on this recent legislation. Below is their announcement and details.
The Paid Family Leave Act was passed by the DC Council after a contentious debate last month. This bill gives universal paid leave to employees of District-based businesses, creates a new agency to manage the program, and levies a new tax on local businesses to pay for it.
A lot is still unknown on how the Mayor and Executive Branch will implement the legislation, and how our community will be impacted.
To help residents and businesses better understand what’s to come, we are bringing together a rock star panel moderated by NBC4’s Tom Sherwood at Busboys and Poets on 14th Street on February 6 at 7pm.
