Part-time Worker / Intermittent / Reduced Work Schedule

Paid Family Leave (PFL) provides partial wage replacement benefits, which means that you may be eligible for a portion of the PFL benefit if you are suffering a loss of wages and meet the other PFL eligibility requirements.

Part-Time Worker

If you work part-time and suffer a wage loss due to you being unable to do your regular or customary work for at least eight days, you may be eligible to receive PFL benefits. The non-payable waiting period does not need to be served in seven consecutive days.

You may receive benefits as long as you have at least $300 in gross wages in your base period, are suffering a loss of wages, and meet other basic eligibility requirements

If you return to work part-time and still suffer a loss of wages, we can pay benefits equal to your wage loss but not more than your weekly benefit rate. We will look at what you earned on a weekly basis before your claim began, then subtract what you’re currently earning working part-time. The difference between the two figures is your wage loss, or the amount of wages you are losing by working part-time. If your wage loss is greater than your weekly benefit amount, you’ll receive benefits at your full PFL rate. If the wage loss is less than your weekly rate, you’ll receive the amount of your wage loss only. Since each situation is different, if you return to work on a part-time basis, please contact State Disability Insurance for clarification.
