Obama Calls for Family-Friendly Workplace Policies

Wall Street Journal (06/23/14) Jeffrey Sparshott

At the first White House Summit on Working Families on June 23, President Obama pushed for paid parental leave and other family-friendly employment policies and touched on such topics as job sharing, flexible hours, and telecommuting. Rather than propose a federal plan to grant paid leave, however, Obama suggested that federal agencies implement existing flexible workplace policies, Congress pass a law requiring reasonable accommodations for pregnant women, and funds be made available to ensure workers in training have access to child care. Additionally, the U.S. Department of Labor will devote funds to researching paid-leave programs.
