Paid Family Leave Webinar
May 17, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Is your business ready for Paid Family Leave? Come learn more about DC Paid Family Leave and what your business needs to know to prepare for this new program.
The Universal Paid Leave Amendment Act of 2016 provides up to eight weeks of parental leave for workers in DC to bond with a new child, six weeks of family leave to care for an ill family member with a serious health condition, and two weeks of medical leave to care for one’s own serious health condition.
Starting July 1, 2019, the District will collect taxes from private sector employers to fund the benefit. The DC Department of Employment Services (DOES) is hosting this PFL Tax Town Hall Forum to:
- Introduce the Office of Paid Family Leave (OPFL)
- Share the latest information about the PFL tax regulations to help employers prepare for the collection of the tax
- Get your feedback and input about how OPFL can best support DC employers and workers
This webinar will focus on the Paid Family Leave tax regulations and requirements District employers will need to know to implement this program. Participants will be able to submit questions during the webinar. You may also submit questions in advance at DOES.OPFL@dc.gov. There will be additional opportunities to share your thoughts and feedback on proposed Paid Family Leave benefits regulations on future webinars and at future town hall forums.
This webinar will take place on Wednesday, May 17 at 1:30pm – 2:30pm. Please register by May 16.
Please contact DOES.OPFL@dc.gov with any questions.
