State's Employment Attorneys Join CTA in Supporting Leave Expansion Bill

In a letter to AB 1562's author Assembly Member Jimmy Gomez (D-Los Angeles), the California Employment Lawyers Association urges lawmakers to approve the bill so that "more of our hard working teachers have access to family leave...and do not have to make the impossible choice between their careers and their families."
