The Center for Women and Work at Rutgers University, in conjunction with the National Partnership for Women Families, has released today a new study entitled *Policy Matters, Public Policy, Paid Leave for New Parents, and Economic Security for U.S. Workers. *
According to the CWW's summary, "...public policies can substantially increase workers’ utilization of paid leave as well as the duration of leave following the birth of a child. Given the variety and magnitude of positive health and economic benefits associated with paid leave in previous studies." Further, the study concludes that "... paid leave policies can be viewed as proactive public investments in the health and well-being of children and families in the United States."
