Washington state will start implementing one of the best paid family and medical leave programs in America on January 1 – with employees eligible to take up to 16 weeks off in 2020.
The new program functions much like insurance and applies to all companies. The premium is equal to 0.4 percent of wages, with both employees and employers each paying their share beginning January 1, 2019. Businesses with fewer than 50 employees don’t have to pay the employer portion of the premium.
