Parental Leave Legislation and Women's Work: A Story of Unequal Opportunities
U.S. federal and state family leave legislation requires employers to provide job protected parental leave for new mothers covered under the legislation. In most cases the leave is unpaid, and rarely longer than 12 weeks in duration. In this presentation, Kerr will evaluate disparities in parental leave eligibility, access and usage across the family income distribution in the U.S., as well as look at the links between leave taking and women's labor market careers.
