FAMILY Act Lobby Day

Date Block

23
May.
Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm Eastern Time
Place: Russell Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C.

Join ASBC and the National Partnership for Women and Families in Washington, D.C. to deliver a strong message to Congress: Paid family and medical leave is good for business – support the FAMILY Act today!

You know replacing workers is expensive. Turnover and lost productivity typically cost 20% of an employee’s salary, so each change costs a firm many thousands of dollars—or more. And replacing people comes with no guarantee of acceptable performance. A lot of turnover can be avoided with policies that encourage long-term worker retention, like the FAMILY Act.

The FAMILY Act is an affordable, sustainable proposal for a national paid-leave program that will help companies recruit and retain quality workers, increase employee productivity and loyalty— and level the playing field for good employers.
