What is Paid Family Leave (PFL)? This is money you receive from your employer, an insurer, or the government while you are away from work for an extended period of time so you can recover from a serious health issue, take care of a seriously ill family member, or bond with your newborn or newly adopted child. PFL has long been a topic of discussion and debate, from the federal level to local businesses, but what are the facts around paid leave programs and how might they effect you and your organization.

Join us for an evening of learning and fact finding with a real-world case study presented by PAE Engineers and the Center for Parental Leave Leadership, as they describe PAE's recent implementation of their company's Wellness Policy.
  • Explore ways to successfully advocate for and implement paid leave programs within your organization
  • Understand the impact of paid leave programs on staff retention and recruitment
  • Learn about resources and best practices for creating and deploying paid leave programs
  • Formulate a process for making a business case for paid leave
