DOVER (March 8, 2022) – Today, the Delaware Senate passed legislation to create a new paid family and medical leave program that includes a payroll tax on small businesses and their employees. Mike O’Halloran, state director for NFIB in Delaware, made the following statement after the vote:

“It’s very disappointing to see the Delaware Senate press forward with a bill that will have an outsized and negative impact on small businesses and their employees. The fact is, small business owners do everything they can to meet the needs of their workers, especially when they have family members in need of palliative care. But this bill creates a payroll tax that will cost owners and workers at a time when they least can afford it.”
