Join 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 working to design and implement a program that meets the needs of children, families, people in need of care, caregivers, employers, and healthcare providers.


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