In the House, the Committee on Ways and Means has held hearings on paid family and medical leave. In 2019, the Senate Finance Committee established a bipartisan Finance Committee working group to 'consider the issue of federal paid family leave policy.' As discussed in this report, there are several legislative proposals designed to either provide or promote access to paid family or medical leave. [...] This report provides an overview of current federal family and medical leave policies. It then discusses proposals in the 116th Congress, including proposals that would create a new social insurance program, proposals related to the federal workforce, and tax policy proposals."
