The bill creates the family and medical leave insurance (FAMLI)
program and the division of family and medical leave insurance (division)
in the department of labor and employment to provide partial wage
replacement benefits to an eligible individual who takes leave from work:
  • To care for a new child or a family member with a serious
health condition;

  • Because the eligible individual is unable to work due to the
individual's own serious health condition or because the
individual or a family member is the victim of abusive
behavior; or
  • Due to certain needs arising from a family member's active
duty service.
Each employee and employer in the state will pay one-half the cost
of a premium as specified in the bill, which premium is based on a
percentage of the employee's yearly wages. The premiums are deposited
into the family and medical leave insurance fund, and family and medical
leave benefits are paid to eligible individuals from the fund. The division
is established as an enterprise, and premiums paid into the fund are not
considered state revenues for purposes of the taxpayer's bill of rights
