FMLA in PA
Analysis of Family and Medical Leave Policy in the State
This paper details the impact of the federal FMLA, as well as the complex web of additional protections many states have. Not all Americans enjoy the same rights to family and medical leave because 40% of them do not live in states that have written additional protections into state law. Pennsylvania is one such state. This paper offers a case study of the policy impact on citizens—particularly women, minorities, and the poor—in Pennsylvania, one of 21 states where lawmakers have not expanded their coverage beyond that of federal law.
