The Universal Paid Leave Amendment Act of 2016 provides up to eight weeks of parental leave to bond with a new child, six weeks of family leave to care for an ill family member with a serious health condition, and two weeks of medical leave to care for one’s own serious health condition.

To opt in, an individual can be self-employed anywhere. However, to be eligible for benefits the individual must earn self-employment income for work performed more than 50% of the time in DC during some or all of the 52 calendar weeks before his or her qualifying event. Benefits start July 2020.
