The California Women’s Law Center (CWLC) supports California Assembly Bill 908 authored by Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez.
AB 908 will allow workers to take time off to care for a new child or ill family member without risking severe financial hardship by increasing the wage replacement rate and extending the length of time a worker can receive PFL benefits.
This bill would expand upon current law, increasing the wage replacement rate by 15% to 25% to provide meaningful financial support to employees who fund the program through deductions from their paychecks.
