FMLA just is NON-PAID leave. My proposal is expanding what FMLA covers, making it paid, and applying to all companies (currently 50+ employees only) here’s a good chart for all of you - https://www.dol.gov/sites/dolgov/files/oasp/legacy/files/paidleavefinalrulecomparison.pdf also PFML is what exists right now. And it’s a paid “insurance”. So pointing to this is the same as pointing to using STD and LTD to pay for maternity leave. It requires planning (you can’t enroll after pregnant as that’s a pre-existing), it requires your employer to offer it, and you have to pay for it.
