In January 2021, most Massachusetts workers become eligible for up to 26 weeks of job-protected paid family and medical leave under the new Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave Law (“PFML”). While benefits under the PFML are not available for well-over a year, employers’ obligations to notify workers of their rights under the PFML and withhold contributions to support the trust fund from which PFML benefits will be paid are around the corner. By September 30, 2019, all workers must receive specific notification of their rights and obligations under the law; contributions to the trust fund must begin being withheld from Massachusetts workers on October 1, 2019.
Employers also have additional considerations to adequately prepare for the availability of PFML benefits in 2021. Knowing and understanding the law’s requirements and your clients’ obligations is critical. Get tips on advising your clients as well as practical insights into how the law affects the workplace. Hear the expert faculty guide you through highlights of the PFML and key issues to consider about its implementation.
