Welcome to the Washington Work and Family Coalition website.
The Washington Work and Family Coalition includes small business owners, unions, community, faith, senior, and women’s groups and other grassroots organizations working to promote policies that support caregiving, healthy Washington families, and a healthy economy.
Now we’re working with our coalition partners, business allies, and the Employment Security Department (ESD) to implement the Paid Family and Medical Leave program. Premium contributions for the program will begin January 1, 2019, and benefits in 2020. Learn more here.
We’re also planning for the 2019 legislative session that will commence on the January 14th. As in the past, we’ll advocate for a strong foundation that will allow individuals, families, and businesses an opportunity to flourish and thrive.
