    Stephen Sweet

Newswise — Stephen Sweet, professor of sociology at Ithaca College, is available to comment on work-family and parental leave legislation in the context of the 2016 election.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has proposed guaranteed paid family and medical leave for all Americans, and the issue could become prominent as the election nears.

Sweet is the author of numerous books and articles that focus on the intersections between work, family, and community. By studying the connections between these different institutions, his research highlights the strains jobs can introduce in family lives, how families respond to these strains and the ways work contributes to individual and family potentials.

More information on Sweet’s expertise and background is available on the Ithaca College website.

Sweet is available for interviews and can be reached at, or by contacting Dan Verderosa in the Ithaca College Office of Marketing Communications at or 607-274-1440.
