Policies to expand coverage and use of paid family and sick leave

October 27 @ 11:40 am12:30 pm PDT

Policies to expand coverage and use of paid family and sick leave

Speaker: Will Dow

The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of paid family and sick leave for safeguarding public health while providing income protection for families. Uniquely among high income countries, access to paid leave is highly limited in the U.S. We will present lessons from our ongoing analyses of paid leave policies (details at https://www.populationsciences.berkeley.edu/PPLO) and discuss implications for future policy innovation.
William H. Dow is a Professor of Health Policy and Management in the School of Public Health, as well as Professor in the Department of Demography. ince 2005, he has been the founding associate director of the Berkeley Population Center and, since 2013, the director of the Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging. He has also served at the School as division head of Health Policy and Management and as the associate dean for research, and in 2018-19 served as Interim Dean of the School of Public Health. He is also a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and previously served as Senior Economist at the White House Council of Economic Advisers.
