We are delighted that a bold family leave policy has moved forward in DC. The policy makes it easier for Development Seed to do right by our team and all the great folks we work with in DC, from our suppliers and vendors, to the people who treat us to heavy pours at happy hour.
As a small business, sharing our responsibility to our employees with other DC businesses lets us offer more aggressive leave policies to our team. A flat tax allows us to do that. There is still work to be done. Congress has 30 days to challenge the law, and there are implementation details to work out. In the meantime, we are proud of DC for taking this big step.
