White House: Proposed 2013 Budget Will Enhance Leave Law Enforcement, State Laws

The White House says its proposed budget for fiscal year 2013 will help states provide paid family leave to workers.

According to a White House statement, “Too many families must make the painful choice between the care of their families and a paycheck they desperately need. The Family and Medical Leave Act allows workers to take job-protected unpaid time off, but millions of families can’t afford to use unpaid leave. A handful of states have enacted policies to offer paid family leave, but more states should have the chance.”

To support this effort, the proposed 2013 budget would allocate a $5 million State Paid Leave Fund within the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to provide technical assistance and support to states that want to establish paid-leave programs.

The proposed budget preserves resources added to worker protection agencies under the Obama administration and includes $1.8 billion for these agencies.

The budget document also includes a $6 million request for DOL’s Wage and Hour Division for increased enforcement of the FMLA and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
