Cost to the Worker
The family leave program is financed 100% by worker payroll deductions. Employers do not contribute to the program.
Starting January 1, 2016, each worker contributes 0.08% of the taxable wage base. For 2016, the taxable wage base is the first $32,600 in covered wages earned during this calendar year, and the maximum yearly deduction for Family Leave Insurance is $26.08.
The taxable wage base changes each year.
