In 2002, California became the first state in the United States to create the Paid Family Leave (PFL) program – a family leave insurance program that provides income replacement to workers on leave for family caregiving or bonding with a new child. This website provides information and key updates about the California PFL program.

This website is maintained by the California Work & Family Coalition. The Coalition is an alliance of community organizations, unions, nonprofits, and individuals dedicated to helping parents, caregivers, and families thrive.We envision a world where all people have the time, resources, and support systems to care for themselves and their families and to lead meaningful, healthy, and happy lives. Our Mission is to organize communities to realize equitable, family-friendly workplaces and to expand the social safety net in California through policy, advocacy, and education.

The California Work & Family Coalition is a member of the Family Values @Work network.
