DC Paid Family Leave Is Here!

DC Paid Family Leave

DC'S $15 MINIMUM WAGE AND PAID FAMILY LEAVE BENEFIT BEGINS TODAY

SUPPORTING THE WELL-BEING OF OUR CHILDREN, FAMILIES AND WORKFORCE

Today, July 1, 2020, marks a major milestone for parents and workers in the District of Columbia!

DC is now the first ‘state’ and the fifth city in the country to pay workers a $15 per hour minimum wage. And, just the sixth jurisdiction to guarantee workers paid family and medical leave.

In the midst of a devastating health crisis and a national uprising demanding racial and economic justice, these milestones are cause to celebrate.

If you're looking for more information about the Paid Family and Medical Leave Program, check out the DC Office of Paid Family Leave website. The employee and employer handbooks are particularly useful and comprehensive.  

 

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS DISCUSSION

Join DC Attorney General Karl Racine, Department of Employment Services Director Unique Morris-Hughes, and local worker rights lawyers for a discussion about our new labor laws and benefits, as well as existing rights to paid sick leave, job protection, and unemployment insurance. It's a great opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the Paid Family Leave benefit.
