Seattle, WA asked in Employment Law for Washington

Q: Hello. I am a WA state employee currently employed on a W2 full time role with one company, with which I am taking paid

family medical leave. I have another full time W2 job in addition to this role. Am I able to take PFML payments from the one job, while also going back to work full time on the second? Is there any way my first employer would know, or the PFML program would know about this other job?

A: The real question is your pregnancy leave for employer number 1 consistent with you not taking pregnancy leave for employer number 2. Your doctor should be making that decision. If you were put on medical leave to protect your health and your child's health, you need to make sure that working for employer number 2 is consistent with the medical restrictions.
