Founded in 2000, the Georgia Job/Family Collaborative works to build support for public policies that strengthen communities by ensuring that working families can balance their responsibilities at home and on the job.
How can we support this kind of balance? Watch our short video on the Family Care Act to learn more about this important bill.
The Family Care Act (HB 290) sponsored by Rep. Katie Dempsey (R-Rome), would allow workers to use their own sick days to care for immediate family members. The bill has strong bi-partisan support and was passed out of the House Human Relations and Aging Committee in February, 2014.
