Refresher on Paid Family Medical Leave

In 2018, the Massachusetts legislature passed a new Paid Family Medical Leave (PFML) law.

October 10, 2019  

Although the benefits are not available until 2021, Massachusetts began collecting a payroll tax on October 1, 2019 to build a fund for the program. Employers need to deduct payroll contributions from a covered individual’s wages or other earnings to fund PFML benefits.

Are you ready for PFML?

All Employers: Any business in Massachusetts with one or more employees is subject to the PFML law. So is any business whose workforce consists of more than 50-percent independent contractors as defined here. Self-employed Individuals are also allowed to elect into this program.

Take these next steps now

  • Hang up this PFML poster in a conspicuous place on your premises.
  • Notify your covered individuals in writing of the PFML law and benefits and get signatures:

WHAT MATTERS TO EMPLOYEES

IS WHAT MATTERS TO US
