Your one-stop resource for Paid Family and Medical Leave in Washington state
Be there for care.
At some time in our lives, we all need to give or receive care—whether recovering from a serious illness or injury, caring for a new child or supporting an aging parent. Paid Family and Medical Leave is a shared benefit that gives every Washingtonian support when they can’t be at work. It means people don’t have to choose between their job, their health and their family.
