House budget provides funds for paid family leave policy

The House budget proposal funds $82 million in start-up costs for the Family and Medical Leave Insurance policy (HB 1116). If the enacted, the state program would provide leave benefits for individuals on leave for a family member's or an individual's serious health condition. It would also provide 26 weeks of leave for birth of a child. The program would be funded through an assessment on employee wages, and up to half of the premium could be deducted from employee pay. AWC is continuing to monitor the progression of this proposal.
