Workforce Fairness Institute Applauds U.S. House Passage Of Working Families Flexibility Act
Washington, D.C. –Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) spokesperson Heather Greenaway released the following statement today in response to passage of the “Working Families Flexibility Act of 2017” (H.R. 1180) in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“We applaud the House’s vote in favor of this pro-worker, pro-family legislation. The Working Families Flexibility Act is a common sense bill that grants private sector employees the same flexibility as public sector employees, affording them choice as to whether they’d prefer to be compensated for working more than 40 hours per week through overtime pay or comp time. Improved flexibility in the workplace is crucial in today’s 21st Century environment. Balancing family and a career can be difficult, and every family has different needs – this legislation helps address those realities. We urge the Senate to expeditiously advance this important reform.”
