Paid Family and Medical Leave is a statewide program. FMLA is a federal program. In short, this does not replace FMLA.
Businesses with fewer than 50 employees do not have requirements under FMLA, but they must collect and remit employee premiums and complete required reporting for Paid Family and Medical Leave.
Many questions about how Paid Family and Medical Leave will interact with FMLA will be answered in phase five of our public rulemaking process. To learn more, visit our rulemaking page.
