I support this modification to the Family Medical Leave Act. This change creates a pool that would make it easier for small businesses to pay for this benefit while finally giving workers financial stability while off work for a medical issue.
First of all, it is the right thing to do and it should not only be about how it benefits my business. But, it would certainly be a benefit just like unemployment insurance to keep an employee in a good place financially while taking time off for family needs.
As a business owner, I support the Family Medical Leave Insurance. It’s important to have financial support while caring for your newborn or your aging parent without losing your whole income. It’s a great start.
It would help my staff out to be able to have time out when they are sick.
Supporting paid family leave insurance helps my bottom-line because I don’t have to pay out of pocket for leave I wish I could give, but can’t afford it.
