In 2005, the National Partnership for Women & Families published the first edition of Expecting Better: A State-by-State Analysis of Laws that Help New Parents, a comprehensive review of federal and state laws that help new and expecting parents take leave when a child arrives. The second edition of Expecting Better documents workers' rights under current state laws and the progress that states have made in promoting the economic security of new parents. In addition, a special section provided a snapshot of state policies that more broadly assist family caregivers--both parents and workers overall--in addressing the needs of their children and other family members. This report documents how far the United States has come, and how far we still have to go. (Author abstract)
