Complimentary Webinar: Preparing for Paid Family and Medical Leave in Washington
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2018
Presented by Ryan Swanson Employment Attorney, Shannon Lawless
Washington’s Paid Family and Medical Leave Act has been in the works for years. Despite sparse media coverage, this law may be the single most important piece of legislation that will affect almost every business owner beginning on January 1, 2019. Yet with the law set to take effect, its details remain vague for many Washington State employers and employees who will be required to pay for it.
In this presentation, you’ll learn the key requirements of Washington’s Paid Family and Medical Leave Act. Employers will identify what they need to do now to prepare for the premium deductions that start January 1 of next year, as well as the pros and cons of participating in the State’s plan versus applying to offer a State-approved, self-insured plan. Shannon will also provide advice on how to educate your employees, and will break down the steps and timeline for ensuring your HR, payroll and accounting will be ready for and compliant with the new law.
