While conversations about paid family medical leave benefits tend to center around new parents, less attention has been paid to a different type of caregiver: those who take care of family members with serious health conditions.
So far, just eleven states and Washington D.C. have passed laws that provide paid leave to workers to care for a family member with a serious health condition. (Legislators cut a federal proposal for paid family leave from what became the Inflation Reduction Act, which was signed into law in August 2022.)
This leaves employees in states without paid family leave reliant upon their employers for this benefit.
