Working Lunch: Federal paid leave gains traction

Legislators push to get it passed by Mother’s Day

The debate over paid leave at the federal level is heating up and there’s a push to get it passed by Mother’s Day. The Align crew has a special guest interview to explain what’s in the bill right now, and looks ahead at what could happen to employers who don’t volunteer to follow it. 

Plus, along with the rest of this week’s legislative scorecard, there’s news out of Washington regarding wages and overtime regulations from the labor secretary.
