Survey: Employers Say Child Care Issues Are Impacting Workforce

A new survey conducted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation has found that employers cited child care nearly as often as they did health and safety issues as a reason why some employees are unable to return to work.

HR Dive reports that the chamber’s findings mirror those released last month by Morning Consult, which found 60% of parents receiving unemployment insurance benefits and with no plans to return to work said care-giving duties stood in the way. More than 40% specifically cited school closures. 8/20/2020
