Paid Family and Medical Leave

It’s here. It’s yours.

Paid Family and Medical Leave is a new benefit for Washington workers. It’s here for you when a serious health condition prevents you from working or when you need time to care for a family member, bond with a new child or spend time with a family member preparing for military service overseas.

Paid time off. Peace of mind.

Paid Family and Medical Leave lets you take paid time off when you need it most, offering stability and peace of mind so you can focus on what matters.
