All Educators Should Have Rights to Taking Family Care Leave

 

CTA is co-sponsoring AB 1562 by Assembly Member Jimmy Gomez (D-NE Los Angeles) which ensures educators can take leave under the California Family Rights Act. Currently, not all educators are eligible based on the amount of hours worked. Part-time teachers, regardless of the work they do outside the classroom such as preparing for classes at home, grading papers, and professional development, to name a few, would not qualify for this leave when a child is born or adopted or when a seriously ill child, parent, or spouse needs care.

The Assembly Labor and Employment Committee will be hearing the bill March 19.

Every child deserves a chance to learn and no child succeeds alone.
