BEST PRACTICES FOR DETERMINING EMPLOYMENT BENEFITS
Paid family leave and health care should be considered rights, not negotiable benefits, for employees of all genders and ages.
WRN partnered with the Center for Parental Leave Leadership (CPLL) to develop the WRN Family and Medical Leave Policy Standards for the Jewish Community which included conducting original research exploring the leave experiences of WRN members.
WRN Educational Videos for Paid Family and Medical Leave
These videos can be used for board, employment policy committee, social justice committee, or hiring/search committee, regarding education, research, and policy discussions. They can also be used by employees to learn language around paid leave.
If you would like access to the original material for use on your organizational website, please contact Rabbi Mary Zamore.
