Good News - Make Calls to Support Sibling FMLA!

The Senate Labor and Industry Committee just approved a bill that would expand FMLA in Pennsylvania to cover siblings, grandparents, and grandchildren! This bill has been introduced over at least 4 sessions now, and today is the first time it has come out of committee.

Joanne’s Law, SB 479, would allow workers who qualify for the FMLA to use that time to care for their siblings, grandparents, and grandchildren (the FMLA only covers parents, children, and spouses). While the leave would be unpaid, it would be a great step towards getting a full paid family leave program in PA.

Please read the story behind Joanne’s Law here, and then take action! Call your Senators to ask them to bring Joanne’s Law up for a vote and to vote yes! Please also call Katrina in Senator Scarnati's office with your name, phone number, and support for the bill - you can reach her at 717-787-7084.
