Parental leave is essential for the health and development of children and their parents. Paid leave not only reduces stress for new parents, but also reduces employee turnover and allows for a more inclusive workforce.
Not all new parents that work for the federal government need 6 weeks of paid leave. This mandate would be costly and could reduce the productivity of federal organizations and congressional offices.
