Is your nonprofit or small business ready for Paid Family Leave? Starting July 1, 2019, the District will collect taxes from all private sector employers to fund universal family leave benefits. 

The Universal Paid Leave Amendment Act of 2016 provides up to eight weeks of parental leave for workers in DC to bond with a new child, six weeks of family leave to care for an ill family member with a serious health condition, and two weeks of medical leave to care for one's own serious health condition.

Join Jason Qu, Managing Attorney at the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center, and staff from the Office of Paid Family Leave at the DC Department of Employment Services for this webinar on the Paid Family Leave tax regulations and requirements District employers will need to know to implement this program.
