Badgett’s study supports changes to FMLA

M. V. Lee Badgett

Lee Badgett, economics professor, director of the Center for Public Policy & Administration and research director at the Williams Institute, is cited in an article about changes to the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).   The U.S. Department of Labor has ruled that FMLA will now allow employees to take unpaid leave to care for children of same-sex partners.  Badgett’s study concludes that up to 100,000 children in 50,000 families could be affected by the ruling.
