Maryland Department of Labor continues community meetings paid family leave through the Family and Medical Leave Insurance (FAMLI)

The Family and Medical Leave Insurance (FAMLI), the state’s new paid family and medical leave insurance which passed during the 2022 legislative session, is a program that will provide every employee in Maryland who has worked at least 680 hours in the previous year, up to 12-months of paid leave for the birth/care for a child, to take care of a family member, or to recuperate from one’s own long-term illness. The program begins in 2026. 

The Maryland Department of Labor is soliciting input from citizens on how FAMLI should be implemented. The department held community meetings to discuss eligibility, employee contribution levels, application processes, precise amount of pay while on the benefit, etc. 

AFT-Maryland has put together a FAQ on the FAMLI Act for members on our website, and interested residents can register for updates by visiting the Maryland Department of Labor website.
