Legislature Proposes New Tax to Fund Family and Medical Leave Insurance Program

The House is proposing the creation of a family and medical leave insurance program that would establish a new tax on the wages of each employee in the state to create a fund to “provide partial wage-replacement benefits to an eligible individual who takes leave from work to care for a new child or a family member with a serious health condition or who is unable to work due to the individual's own serious health condition.” A copy of proposed House Bill 15-1528 can be found here.
