Ohio Women's Public Policy Network

Co-Sponsor the Statewide Family and Medical Leave Insurance Legislation in the Ohio House

Deadline: March 05, 2018

The United States is the only industrialized country in the world without some form of guaranteed, legally-protected paid leave. Because of that shortfall, only 15 percent of workers have access to paid family leave, and that drops to a mere four percent among low-wage workers. Paid family and medical leave policies provide workers with financial support that they need to take time off of work to care for a loved one or address their own health issue without risking their economic security.

The bill would allow workers to continue earning a portion of their paycheck to take time away from work to:
•	Care for and bond with a new baby
•	Care for a family member with a serious health condition
•	Address one’s own medical health condition
