Erik Rettig, Mid-Atlantic Director for Small Business Majority, testified on October 10, 2017 in support of implementation of Washington, D.C.'s paid family leave legislation. The law establishes a paid leave system that provides up to eight weeks of paid family and medical leave to allow employees to care for a newborn baby, six to provide care for a family member or two to recuperate themselves from a serious illness. The testimony explained how implementing this law will benefit, not burden, small businesses.
