Who is not eligible for paid leave?

Certain workers are not always eligible for Paid Leave:

  • Federal employees
  • People employed by businesses located on Tribal land
  • Self-employed people who choose not to opt into the state program
  • If you are covered by a collective bargaining agreement that hasn’t expired, been reopened, or renegotiated since Oct. 19, 2017, you may not be eligible yet. Ask your employer or union representative if you are unsure if this applies to you.
  • If you work for an employer with an approved voluntary plan you may not be eligible to use the state plan, but you would be able to use your employer’s benefits.
