Washington Family Leave Coalition releases 2010 candidate questionnaires

The Washington Family Leave Coalition’s 2010 Candidate Questionnaire is now available to any organization wishing to discuss work-family public policy issues with municipal, state legislative and national candidates for elective office in Washington State.

For discussions with candidates for national office, please see these fact sheets on the federal Healthy Families Act and FIRST Act to learn more about these important pieces of pending federal legislation.

For discussions with municipal and state legislative candidates for office, Who Can Stay Home with the Flu? is a short and informative policy brief outlining the need for paid sick days in Washington State and local municipalities.

The Washington Work and Family Coalition includes representatives of seniors, women, labor, health professionals, children’s advocates, faith communities, low income workers, employers, non-profits and other organizations. We’re working together to make it easier for parents to raise healthy children and care for aging parents; for workers to care for themselves or their partners in the event of a serious illness; and for businesses to offer modern workplace standards that improve productivity and worker health.
