Resources to Support Your Employees During the COVID-19 Outbreak

In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, many clients have asked us about what benefits may be available to employees under certain scenarios.

Does Washington’s Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML) apply if an employee is sick? What about if employees are furloughed or are quarantined?

The Washington Employment Security Department (ESD) has published a handy infographic to assist employers in answering these questions and more. We’ve provided a link here for your convenience. [COVID-19 Resource: Scenarios & Benefits Available].

Of course, we remain available to help you navigate these unprecedented times. Do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.
