Washington State Family Care Act

Washington's Family Care Act (FCA) ( allows an employee with available paid sick leave or other paid time off to use the employee’s choice of paid leave to care for a sick minor child with a routine illness, for a spouse, registered domestic partner, parent, parent-in-law or grandparent with a serious or emergency health condition or for a sick adult child who is incapable of self care because of  a physical or mental disability.

An employer may not discipline an employee for leave taken under this law.
