Working Lunch Podcast: Paid Leave Preemption Battles

ORLANDO, Fla. — Align Public Strategies is a full-service public affairs and creative firm that helps corporate brands, governments and nonprofits navigate the outside world and inform their internal decision-making. Each week, the Align team discusses the top items impacting business models on its “Working Lunch” podcast.

On this week's Working Lunch podcast, the Align crew tackles big businesses’ request for federal paid leave preemption. Wendy’s, General Mills, Marriott International and almost 400 companies asked Congress to establish a threshold for paid leave. The team at Align evaluates this move, as well as preemption battles in Missouri and other states.

This week’s podcast also includes a caution to companies hoping to push their business agendas in Washington, D.C. now that all of the focus has shifted dramatically to the firing of the FBI director.
