Tell Congress To Protect Jobs for Newly Bereaved Families
Imagine how many families have lost a loved one in the past year. Our nation’s collective grief is inescapable and it has impacted all of us.
Today, there are no federal legal protections for newly bereaved families except for narrow exceptions. Congress must act! Workers can lose a loved one and then their job, all in a day’s time. While most employers do whatever they can to be supportive, some do not and none are legally bound to do so. There are employees who lose their jobs on the heels of losing their loved one.
Tell Congress to protect the jobs of the newly bereaved.
Evermore, along with more than 100 organizations, encouraged The White House to include bereavement leave in the American Families Plan. President Biden heard our calls and included bereavement protections for the newly bereaved, for the first time in our nation’s history!
Now, those employment protections are being considered by Congress. To ensure those protections become law, please make two calls today to ask for the passage this important bereavement leave legislation.
For every one call Congress receives, lawmakers believe that it accounts for 100 voters.
Now, imagine…ten people make calls or one hundred or one thousand…We can make this change. We can protect the jobs of the newly bereaved. We can do this together.
We ask that you call the two Congressional lawmakers, U.S. Senator Patty Murray and U.S. Representative Bobby Scott, and tell them to pass bereavement leave protections for workers now.
