National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors Supports the Workflex in the 21st Century Act.
H.R. 4219 proposes a creative, flexible alternative in which employers are given a choice: continue to comply with the increasingly complicated web of varying state and local enactments in this space, or offer a “Qualified Flexible Work Arrangement Plan” (QFWA) under the Employee Retirement and Income Security Act (ERISA). To qualify as an ERISA plan and thus preempt all state and local paid leave laws, the employer’s QFWA must include both a paid leave and a flexible work arrangement component.
