Washington recently provided model family and medical leave notices and posters. As background, Washington’s Paid Family & Medical Leave program became effective on January 1, 2020. We discussed this law in the November 26, 2019, edition of Compliance Corner.
Employers with employees who reside in Washington state must display a poster in their places of business to notify employees about the Paid Family and Medical Leave program. In addition, employers are required to provide notice within five business days of becoming aware of any employee who is taking time off for more than seven consecutive days of work to care for a family member or their own serious health condition.
Employers should ensure that they comply with the law by issuing the required notices and posters.
