Washington's new Paid Family & Medical Leave Insurance LawOnline, October 6, 2017
9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
This year, Washington's Legislature made us the fifth state in the nation to have a paid family and medical leave insurance program. By all accounts, Washington's new program is the most generous in the country, and in one way or another covers all employees and employers.
The program is set to begin collecting premiums in 2019, and its benefits for covered employees will begin in 2020, and its administration at the Employment Security Department is already underway.
Where did this new law come from? What are its obligations on employers and benefits for employees? Is there an option for self-insurance and how can an employer achieve it? What interactions might there be with workers' compensation and other individual disability programs? How should employers and disability leave managers start preparing today for its implementation?
Our panel of experts will tackle these and more questions during our two hour webinar, October 6th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., including your questions.
