About the D.C. Office of Paid Family Leave

The DC Office of Paid Family Leave (OPFL) at the DC Department of Employment Services (DOES) is working with employers and residents to support the implementation of Paid Family Leave and to ensure our communities are a meaningful part of the process. We are:

  • Engaging with the employer and worker communities
  • Developing an infrastructure to manage the benefit for employers and workers
  • Learning from other states that have Paid Family Leave programs
  • Managing rulemaking and public input

The Office of Paid Family Leave is committed to meaningful and ongoing community engagement as the program is developed and launched. We want to hear from you! Share your questions and concerns with the Office of Paid Family Leave at does.opfl@dc.gov.


It can be life changing if you have an emergency moment.

Across DC, employers and residents aim to thrive each day. The Office of Paid Family Leave is working to design and implement a program that meets the needs of children, families, people in need of care, caregivers, employers, and healthcare providers.
