<a >Washington Enacts Paid Family Leave Law.</A>
Making Washington the second state to mandate paid family leave, Governor Christine Gregoire has signed a bill directing an as yet undesignated state agency to establish and administer the family leave insurance program slated to begin on October 1, 2009. Under the new law, approved on May 8, 2007, employees in the state are entitled to up to five weeks’ paid family leave “because of the birth of a child of the employee and in order to care for the child,” or “because of the placement of a child with the employee for adoption.” The law also provides certain employees with re-employment after taking leave.
