6. Paid Family Leave Update
Below is information from the King County Office of Labor Relations regarding the Paid Family Leave Pilot program. TEA has not edited the content of the following:
If passed by Council, the Pilot is expected to become effective on or about January 1, 2016, and expire December 31, 2016. Below is a brief summary of the proposed legislation and the principles that form the basis for the proposal.
The Office of Labor Relations is planning to send a Memorandum of Agreement to King County Union representatives offering agreement to the terms of the Pilot outlined above. You can expect to receive this Agreement via email once the proposed legislation is passed. In the meantime, should you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to call the OLR negotiator assigned to your CBA.
An additional resource for employees with questions about this Pilot is King County's Human Resource Division(HRD). As explained in the attached November 23 email notice to employees, HRD has created a FAQ webpage to assist employees who would like additional information about the PPL Pilot. Instructions for using that website are included in the attached email.
The link to the FAQ is www.kingcounty.gov/audience/employees/pay-benefits/paid-parental-leave/FAQs.aspx
TEA will be holding a Special Meeting on Thursday December 3, 2015, to discuss the pilot program and implications for our membership. Please join us at noon in the 5th Floor conference room Cloaca Maxima.
