Virtual Conversation with Congressman Danny Davis
August 26, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
COVID-19 has shone a spotlight on the lack of paid leave policies in the United States, forcing workers to make an impossible choice between their own health and the health of their families, or their paycheck and their job. In an early relief package, Congress included limited emergency paid leave, providing up to 10 days of paid sick time and 12 weeks of paid family leave, but the legislation leaves out as many as 80 percent of Illinoisans and expires at the end of the year.
Join Women Employed and Congressman Danny K. Davis, Representative for Illinois’ 7th District, for a virtual conversation about paid leave policies, including emergency paid leave to address the COVID-19 pandemic and permanent policies to ensure workplace protections for all.
