Labor Committee Meets to Vote on Paid Leave Law

On Wednesday, July 13, at 1pm, the DC Council's Labor and Workforce Development Committee will meet to vote on B24-615, “District Government Paid Leave Enhancement Amendment Act of 2022.”  The bill expands paid family leave available to District government workers to up to 12 weeks per year for family or parental leave, increased from 8 weeks per year, and establish paid personal medical leave and pre-natal leave for the first time. The bill would also adjust the current program’s rules such that employees may take leave one year following the start of their previous paid leave, rather than one year following the end of their last leave, which unfairly delays a second leave for employees initially taking leave on an intermittent basis.  

The committee print is available here, and the committee report is available here.
