Handle Paid Family Leave in Gusto

Paid Family Leave (PFL) is a benefit that currently exists in four states to give partial pay to employees for their time off work taken for qualified family leave. Those states are:

Washington DC and the state of Washington have also enacted PFL laws that will begin to pay out benefits in 2020.

PFL coverage and claims are exclusively handled through the state agencies. Gusto cannot advise on the amount of coverage an employee may or may not receive from the state. Check out the state websites above for more information.

If you need to reduce your employee’s salary while they are on PFL you can do so in their employee profile, under the Compensation section.
