Employers who provide paid family and medical leave to their employees may claim a credit for tax years 2018 and 2019. The Employer Credit for Paid Family and Medical Leave is a business credit based on a percentage of wages paid to qualifying employees while they’re on family and medical leave.
To claim the credit, eligible employers must have a written policy in place that satisfies certain requirements, including:
- At least two weeks of paid leave to full-time employees (prorated for part-time employees), and
- The paid leave must be at least 50% of the wages normally paid to the employee.
