 Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML) Poster PDF

The Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML) Poster is a labor law posters poster by the Washington Department Of Labor & Industries. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in Washington, and businesses who fail to comply may be subject to fines or sanctions.

This mandatory Washington poster provides employees with information about Washington's Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML) law, which provides paid leave for personal medical issues, caring for a family member, certain military situations, and bonding with a new child.

This law applies to all employers and covers full-time and part-time employees. Eligible employees can receive up to 12 weeks of paid leave within a 12-month period for their own serious health condition or to care for a family member, as well as two additional weeks of leave for the birth, adoption, or placement of a child for foster care.

The amount of leave is based on the employee's wage and work hours. This poster summarizes the amount of wage benefits available, and premiums collected from employee's wages. Employers must provide this leave to eligible employees and cannot discriminate or retaliate against employees for taking it.

Paid time off. 	  
Peace of mind.	
Paid Family and Medical Leave provides paid time off when a serious health 
condition prevents you from working, when you need to care for a family member 
or a new child, or for certain military-related events. It’s here for you when you 
need it most, so you can focus on what matters.
How it works
Your rights Nearly every Washington worker—whether you work full time o
r part time in a 
small to large	 business—is eligible for up	 to 1 2 weeks of Paid Family and Medical 
Leave. You need to work 8 20 hours in Washington, or about 16 hours per	
over the course of about a y ear. You can get up to 16 weeks if you have family	
and medical events in the same yea r, or up to 18 weeks in some cases. Leave 
doesn’t have to be taken all at once . You can use these weeks within your 
“claim yea r	
,” which starts when you apply a nd then runs for	 the next 52 weeks. 
When that claim year expires you can then be eligible for leave again.
You apply for leave with the Employment Security Department and will get 
partial wage replacement, up to 90 percent of your typical pay, capped a\
427	 per week.
If you meet the requirements, you have the right to take paid time off using 
Paid Family and Medical Leave.  
If you qualify for Pa	
id Family and Medical Leave, your employer cannot prevent 
you from taking it . Your employer also cannot require you to use other types 
of leave, such as sick or vacation days, before or after taking Paid Family and 
Medical Leave. The program is funded by premiums shared between workers 
and many employers. The premium is 0.8% of your wage.  You may pay about 
 of that total, and your employer (if they have 50 or more employees) \
pays the rest. A calculator to estimate premiums is available on our web\
file a complaint against your employer about Paid Family and Medical 
Leave, email or call our Customer Car e Team at [email protected]  
or (833) 717-2273. 
You may also contact the Office of the Paid Family and Medical Leave 
Ombuds . The Ombuds is appointed by the governor and serves as a neutral, 
independent third party to help workers and employers in their dealings with 
the Department.  The Office of the Ombuds investigates, reports on and helps 
settle complaints about service deficiencies and concerns with the Paid Family 
and Medical Leave program. Learn more at or 
call the Ombuds’ office at 844-395-669 7.
