FV@W’s 27 state coalitions have helped win paid family and medical leave (PFML) and earned sick and safe days (ESSD) policies benefiting 50 million workers. But these wins for working families depend on the people who most need paid time knowing about and being able to access their rights. Research has shown that many workers remain unaware of the laws or how to access the time. They may also fear retaliation for taking leave or be unclear on how to apply or seek enforcement. FV@W, with assistance from CLASP, will produce a blueprint that, through text and illustrations, provides a clear pathway for implementing agencies to engage communities in improving paid leave policy design, implementation, and enforcement, while increasing paid leave take-up rates among the most vulnerable workers.
