Paid family leave provides up to six weeks of partial pay to employees who take time off from work to care for a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child entering the family through birth, adoption, or foster care placement. This is not enough time for parents to develop the skills required to become co-parents rather than having an individual become a helper instead. Paid family leave is funded by mandatory payroll deductions from covered workers, meaning that your previous paychecks have helped pay for your own benefits and the benefits of millions of other eligible Californians. Extending the amount of time for paid family leave to twelve weeks will directly impact the development and bonds that parents have with their new child. It will also allow partners to care for those who have just given birth during their recovery phase.
