Washington DC Paid Family & Medical Leave
The District of Columbia (DC) has released new guidelines about how Paid Family & Medical Leave should be handled. As a statewide program, employers and employees can contribute through payroll withholding.
In general, covered employees include all employees who have a work location in DC. Employers are subject to pay DC Unemployment for these covered employees. Beginning April 1st, 2019, employers will be subject to .62% payroll tax on covered worker wages. If you are Full Service with the DC Department of Employment Services, Zenefits will automatically calculate and remit the DC Paid Family Leave taxes on your behalf.
To learn more about how this affects your company and employees, and for additional resources, please check out DC’s Paid Family Leave page.
