Overview of the Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave Law

Tuesday, November 6, 2018 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Under the new Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave Law, Massachusetts workers will be entitled to take paid family and medical leave starting in 2021. The law creates a new state agency, the Department of Family and Medical Leave, to administer the new paid leave program.  The new law also creates the Family and Employment Security Trust Fund to fund paid leave benefits.

This presentation will discuss some key facts and requirements under the new law, some of which take effect in July 2019. 

Topics will include: eligibility and coverage under the law, qualifying uses for family and medical leave, maximum leave entitlements, employee and employer notice and posting requirements, payment of leave benefits, interactions with other leaves, job protection and anti-retaliation provisions, and how paid leave will be funded.
