Many States Fail On Policies For New Parents, Study Says
It's scary being a new parent, and many state regulations make the adjustment period very difficult for new moms and dads who have jobs. A recent study gives both Kansas and Missouri a failing grade in this area.
On Wednesday's Up to Date, we look at the research that passes California's regulations with flying colors, awards a healthy "B" to Illinois and grudgingly passes Colorado with a "C." We also delve into the details of what makes a good grade: job-protected and maternity leave, pregnancy accommodation, sick leave and more.
