If you need assistance scheduling an appointment with Idento Go, you may contact their office at 844-321-2124.Millions of working families experience a day-to-day struggle to make ends meet – nearly 40% of America’s children live in low-income families.1 When these families experience a major life event, such as having a baby or taking care of a family member with a serious illness, their already fragile financial situation can be further jeopardized.In terms of children’s health, access to paid parental leave has been found to reduce child mortality, particularly when the leave is paid and provides job- protection benefits.4 Researchers have concluded that parental leave may be a cost-effective way to improve children’s health.5 Granting longer periods of leave post-birth can contribute to healthy child development: babies whose mothers return to work within 12 weeks of child birth are less likely to be breast-fed, less likely to be up-to-date on their immunizations, and more likely to exhibit externalizing behavior problems.I would like to write a short thank you for Erin Caswell.The mandate, therefore, targets the portion of Americans who did not have health insurance prior to 2014, and those who have remained uninsured in the ensuing years. But it does not include "excepted benefits" like short-term health insurance, accident supplements, or critical illness plans.If you don’t have health insurance, you will pay a tax penalty that was phased in starting with the 2014 coverage year (assessed when people filed their taxes in early 2015).With recent social and demographic shifts – including the increased participation of women in the labor force and the aging of the population – balancing work obligations with family responsibilities has become more and more challenging for all families.

This brief begins by discussing research on the benefits of family leave and describing the federal Family and Medical Leave Act.

It then examines the strengths and limitations of existing state-level policies, with a focus on California, which in 2002 became the first state to enact paid family leave.

Finally, the brief concludes with recommendations for state policymakers considering paid family leave, with an emphasis on how these policies could be crafted to best serve the needs of low-wage workers and their families.

Research indicates that family leave policies help to improve child and family health and well-being and contribute to greater family economic security.
