Are you eligible for DC Paid Family Leave?

The District of Columbia’s Paid Family Leave program provides employees with benefits when they are out on leave from work to bond with a new child, take care of a family member, or take care of their own serious health condition. Paid Family Leave is an
insurance program, which means that only employees who have worked in a covered job can receive benefits and only when they experience a covered event. You can visit the How to Apply (new window) section of the DC PFL website and view the Employee Handbook (new window) to learn more.
