Part-time Worker / Intermittent / Reduced Work Schedule
Paid Family Leave is a wage loss protection program, which means that individuals may be eligible for a portion of the Paid Family Leave benefit if they are suffering a loss of wages and meet the other Paid Family Leave eligibility requirements.
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 consecutive days, you may be eligible to receive Paid Family Leave benefits.
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 SDI 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 SDI for clarification.
