Small Business and Family Leave. A Gallup/NFIB Survey of 950 Small Businesses.
National Federation of Independent Business, Washington, DC.
A Gallup/National Federation of Independent Business telephone survey of 950 small businesses was undertaken to determine attitudes toward parental leave. The sample was subdivided into four groups: businesses with 2-14 employees, 15-49 employees, 50-99 employees, and 100 or more employees. Questions pertained to existing policies for time off for family illness or childbirth, including such related issues as differential policies, limited leave, leave with pay versus without pay, eligibility, purpose in establishing a leave policy, individual requests, proposed laws regarding family leave, numbers of requests made, how to make up for the employee's absence, problems caused by family leave, and rehires. Responses are presented in tabular form, but no analysis is provided. (LB)
