Washington Paid Family and Medical Leave: Is It Time to Opt Out?

Washington Paid Family and Medical Leave: Is It Time to Opt Out?
In this webinar, we will explore how you purchase WA PFML benefits and if it is time to consider opting out of the state plan. Using proprietary tools, Parker, Smith & Feek will demonstrate how we can help you evaluate whether opting out makes sense for your business based on both financial and personal metrics. We will also share insight into what it takes to opt out and some of the associated pitfalls. We will address:

  • The current state of WA PFML – cost, benefits, and future
  • How to evaluate how you purchase the benefit – through Washington state or an opt-out plan
  • What it takes to opt out and how it might work
  • If your business is in Oregon and Washington, how the implementation of the OR PFMLI might impact your decision to opt out
