U.S. Chamber of Commerce Supports the Workflex in the 21st Century Act
The U.S. Chamber commends you for introducing H.R. 4219, the Workflex in the 21st Century Act, an innovative approach to increasing the availability of paid leave and flexible work options for American employees that also helps employers navigate a patchwork of conflicting regulations.
H.R. 4219 differs from other leave proposals by relying on an incentive mechanism, along with scaled amounts of leave, to expand the providing of paid leave and flexible work options that suit a broad array of workplaces. In addition to helping more employers provide paid leave benefits, the bill encourages a trend already occurring in the modern workplace: employees and employers increasingly embracing workplace flexibility to expand the choices of when, where, and how work is done.
