Parenting Leave, Pay Measure Heading To Final Vote

Parenting Leave, Pay Measure Heading To Final Vote
ST. PAUL, MN -

New parents would be entitled to longer unpaid leaves. Nursing mothers would find more private space at work. And large state contractors would have to certify they pay men and women similar salaries for similar jobs.

Those are the parameters of employment legislation due for final action in the House and Senate as soon as Wednesday. The bill called the Women's Economic Security Act updates state workplace laws and are aimed at ensuring employees aren't held back by gender.

A key measure is to let employees take 12 weeks instead of the current six for pregnancy and parenting leave in conjunction with a child's birth or adoption. Employers would also have to make reasonable accommodations for pregnant workers.

Some business groups worry the legislation could expose them to more litigation.
