Millions of Californians will receive more family and disability leave benefits under a new law signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday.

The bill will increase vacation benefits for low- and middle-income workers to cover their earnings when they need to take time off to care for loved ones or themselves.

By 2025, those earning less than the state median wage could be paid up to 90% of their regular wages while they take furloughs.

Many of these employees are women and people of color.

“California families and our state as a whole are stronger when workers have the support they need to provide for themselves and their loved ones,” Newsom said.
