DC Paid Family Leave Employer Town Hall Forum

DC Paid Family Leave Employer Town Hall Forum

Paid Leave Logo

Is your business ready for Paid Family Leave? Come learn more about DC Paid Family Leave and what your business needs to know to prepare for this new program.

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. 

Starting July 1, 2019, the District will collect taxes from private sector employers to fund the benefit. The DC Department of Employment Services (DOES) is hosting this PFL Employer Town Hall Forum to:

  • Introduce the Office of Paid Family Leave (OPFL)

  • Share the latest information about the PFL tax regulations to help employers prepare for the collection of the tax

  • Get your feedback and input about how OPFL can best support DC employers and workers

The town hall forum will focus on the PFL tax regulations and requirements DC employers will need to know to implement this program.

Please note: To accommodate a larger number of participants, we will hold two (2) town hall forum sessions, each of which will provide the same information. All participants are invited to join us for lunch at 12pm – 1pm. Please select only one session to attend. 

Paid Family Leave Town Hall Forum Schedule – April 23

  • Session #1: 11am – 12pm

  • Lunch (for all participants): 12pm – 1pm

  • Session #2: 1pm – 2pm

Attendees will be able to submit questions during the event. You may also submit questions in advance via email to does.opfl@dc.gov. There will be additional opportunities to share your thoughts and feedback on proposed Paid Family Leave benefits at future town hall forums and on webinars.

Please register by Monday, April 22.

Please contact does.opfl@dc.gov with any questions.
