Washington Paid Family Leave Is Coming in 2019: Employers Need to Start Preparing

Under Washington’s new Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML) law, eligible employees will be entitled to paid leave up to 12 weeks for their own serious health condition (medical leave) or for family care (family leave), up to 16 weeks combined family and medical leave, and up to 2 additional weeks for certain pregnancy complications.

Employers must begin remitting premiums and submitting quarterly reports for PFML starting on January 1, 2019.

Starting January 1, 2020, employees may begin taking PFML leave.

Are you wondering if this program applies to your company? What to tell employees? How to comply?


You are invited to a FREE, one-hour educational seminar on the essentials of the new Paid Family Leave for Washington employers.

WHEN:          November 6, 2018, at 11:00 a.m.
