Democrats in Congress have been pushing for a federal paid leave mandate for quite some time. Democrats in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives reintroduced legislation that would create a paid leave program on the national level. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) reintroduced the Family and Medical Insurance Leave (FAMILY) Act (S. 463/H.R. 1185), which would allow workers to receive up to 12 weeks of paid leave for reasons such as health conditions, pregnancies, childbirth or to care for a family member. The two legislators first introduced the FAMILY Act in 2013 and in every Congress since then, but it has so far failed to gain sufficient support to become law. President Joe Biden has signaled his support to push for the enactment of the FAMILY Act, as well as a national sick leave bill known as the Healthy Families Act.
