Since the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FLMA) was first enacted, the provisions of the Act have essentially remained unchanged. Currently, federal efforts around enhancing the unpaid FMLA program remain stalled in Congress. The good news is that in absence of federal action, states have moved to fill the gap. Twelve states to date offer or will shortly offer paid family/medical leave. All state programs are funded through employee-paid payroll taxes, and some are partially funded by employer-paid payroll taxes.
