Paid Family Medical Leave

I just wanted to make sure that I'm doing this correctly - in the Washington Paid Medical Family Leave, I see one of the line items in "emp."  I assumed that was "employer."  Is it actually "employee"?

 

Thanks,

Teri

Thanks for posting here in the Community, @GHL Architectural Millwork.

 

To answer your question, WA – Paid Fam Med Leave Emp payroll item is for the Employee portion, while WA – Paid Fam Med Leave Co is for the Employer or company.

 

After the Payroll Items are added, go to each employee's tax set up to enter the percentage of the total insurance premium or 100% of 0.4% of employee wages. Here's how:

 

1. Go to Employees menu at the top.
2. Pick Employee Center on the drop-down.
3. Double click the employee name.
4. On the Edit Employee window, go to the Payroll Info tab and pick Taxes.
5. In the Taxes screen, select the Other tab.
6. Select the WA – Paid Fam Med Leave Co line. In the Co. Portion Rate field, enter the company share of the premium portion rate as a whole number (no decimals).
7. Select the WA – Paid Fam Med Leave Emp line. In the Emp. Portion Rate field, enter the employee share of the premium portion rate (no decimals).
