In 2018, Massachusetts signed into law a statute that provides paid family and medical leave (PFML) benefits to workers. Employers and employees must begin making contributions in October of 2019 to a new state fund which will administer and distribute the benefits beginning in 2021.

We held a special webinar to discuss the program and how to be compliant (recorded May 2019):
