D.C. Universal Paid Leave Implementation Roundtable To Be Held By City Council

The D.C. City Council has announced that a public oversight roundtable will be held by the Committee on Labor and Workforce Development this Thursday, July 11 at 1:00 p.m. (ET). 
The roundtable is aimed at addressing implementation of the Universal Paid Leave Amendment Act of 2016 and, specifically, the collection system for employer contributions funding the paid leave benefits, which became operational in late June.
The Committee has asked for employer input and feedback on their experience with the program’s implementation and contribution collection.
A related point of concern is the awaited rules and regulations governing administration of program benefits, which were separated from those governing tax contributions and have yet to be released. ERIC will work to build on the testimony that we submitted for the previous Council roundtable, which was held on May 6.
