In late February we hosted a 30 minute webinar focused on the MA Paid Family and Medical Leave draft legislation. We had over 50 employers join in and received some great feedback!

With regulations due to be published by the end of this month, employers should stay tuned for any deviations from the draft regulations. In the short term, employers should be prepping for how both employer and employee contributions (beginning in July 2019) will be remitted. Further, when paid leave benefits begin in 2021, employers need to start planning for how they will interact with benefit programs like short-term disability.
