President Trump’s daughter and key advisor, Ivanka Trump, was discussing paid leave with Senators this week, explaining changes that the administration would endorse in pending paid leave proposals. The current plan put forth by republicans would give employees the option to contribute tax-free dollars to a Parental Savings Account from which funds could be withdrawn as needed. Under the Working Parents Flexibility Act, filed by Representative John Katko (R-NY), employers would be under no obligation to allow or fund any portion of the account. Conversely, a democratic plan refiled earlier this year by democratic Representatives and Senators would mandate twelve weeks of paid leave, funded by employer contributions. The Trump administration has indicated on numerous occasions a preference for a paid leave mandate of up to 6 weeks and it would appear Ivanka was delivering that message.
