Paid Family Leave Collaborative
The California Women’s Law Center is a founding member of the Paid Family Leave Collaborative, which works to inform Californians about their rights under the Paid Family Leave law – the first comprehensive paid leave program in the nation. The law provides most Californians with up to six weeks of partial pay when taking leave from work to bond with a new baby, foster, or adopted child or to care for a seriously ill parent, spouse, child or domestic partner.
As part of the Collaborative, CWLC offers workshops to community groups, labor unions, health care providers, legal services agencies and social services agencies. CWLC also offers technical assistance and written materials to the public.
Health Resource Guide for Working Women Over 50
CWLC seeks to increase outreach, education, training and technical assistance on the interrelated health and work issues that disproportionately impoverish older working women in California. As part of this effort, CWLC has developed a resource guide that informs older working women about available health care resources in the private and government sectors, their health care rights and benefits and information on how to appeal and take action when these rights and/or benefits are denied.
