The Status of Paid Family & Medical Leave in Indiana
Late in 2016, Indiana Institute for Working Families released a report on paid family and medical leave . The report included data and policy recommendations, such as advocating for state involvement in the provision of a paid family and medical leave insurance program that would be available to all Hoosier workers.
Several states have seen success with state-administered family leave insurance programs that are paid for by employee contributions. Businesses in California have found it reduced turnoverâsaving them money in hiring and trainingâand increased morale and productivity.
