Been taking a closer look at the #paidsickdays and #familyleave provisions of the #familiesfirst Coronavirus Response Act that the House just passed. Some first impressions.
The bill amends the #FMLA AND has a new Act that requires private employers with fewer than 500 workers and all public employers to offer #paidsickleave.
Mandatory #paidsickleave ONLY applies if you are affected by #coronavirus and need time off because you are sick or exposed or if you have a family member who is affected (either sick or home from school or childcare because of closures).

🚨 Health workers: thread of #COVID19 advocacy 🚨

We have a role in public health communication and influencing decision-makers at various levels.

1) Explain to loved ones the need to social distance. This guide helps 👇🏽
2) Push your employer and all employers to embrace remote work and paid leave policies.
3) Shift outpatient care toward tele-visits, especially for the most vulnerable, but also for others where a tele-visit will suffice.

#Childfree & #paidleaveforall communities can coexist. ❤ It's possible to be inclusive about the word "family".
Everyone should have the freedom to define family for themselves. ❤

✔ Instead of time off for "birth", time off for "care"
✔ Instead of "newborn child" or
"family member", how about "loved one"

Proud to join @SenMcSallyAZ, @SenBillCassidy, @SenCapito, @marcorubio, and @SenJoniErnst at @IvankaTrump’s @WhiteHouse Child Care & Paid Leave Summit to discuss our efforts to find #PaidFamilyLeave solutions for parents in the critical first few months of their children’s lives. ImageImage
@SenMcSallyAZ @SenBillCassidy @SenCapito @marcorubio @SenJoniErnst @IvankaTrump @WhiteHouse @SenRubioPress Allowing both moms and dads the opportunity to participate in the early months of a child’s life is critical to a child’s development. My legislation with @marcorubio would give parents the flexibility to take time off with pay without growing our national debt or raising taxes.
@SenMcSallyAZ @SenBillCassidy @SenCapito @marcorubio @SenJoniErnst @IvankaTrump @WhiteHouse @SenRubioPress We have a lot of families in Utah and I know it can be an extraordinary burden for many families to care for their children when they come home from the hospital. Our New Parents Act would allow parents to bring forward a future benefit at the time when they need it the most.

Millions of men and women across the country don’t have access to #PaidFamilyLeave, meaning they could be forced to choose between taking care of a child or loved one and losing their paycheck, or even their job
Any family leave proposal that cuts social security benefits or excludes family and military caregiving is not #RealPaidLeave
Hardworking ppl deserve the #FAMILYAct – the only #PaidFamilyLeave proposal that covers every working American w/o excluding medical leave or military caregiver leave,&it doesn’t speed up Social Security’s insolvency like a proposal some colleagues support thehill.com/policy/finance…

I love that on #InternationalWomensDay we take the time to celebrate women, it's brilliant. What would be even more brilliant is if we did this every day. For the next 365 days, I am going to add a Tweet a day in celebration of women from around the world 🌍 Let's get started 👇
Day 1: @drpriaero is an Aerospace Engineer / Senior Research Associate at @UniofOxford's Department of Engineering Science, researching fluid dynamics & thermodynamics of jet engines 🚀 #IWD2018 #IWDEveryDay
Day 2: @monicasarbu created @packetbeat, an open source data shipper, before joining forces with @elastic to lead the Beats team. She's a mum while at it too 💪 #IWD2018 #IWDEveryDay
