(Bismarck, ND) — The North Dakota House isn’t moving forward with paid family leave legislation. The House rejected a bill yesterday that would have created a statewide family leave program. The proposal would have been funded mostly by employers and workers. Workers would have been able to contribute to a state pool that would have paid them 60-percent of their salary for up to 12 weeks for an eligible event, such as the birth of a child or a family member’s extended illness.
