Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave Law (PFML) Webinar

Every Massachusetts employer, no matter how few employees they have, must comply with the sweeping new Paid Family and Medical Leave (“PFML”) law, which permits employees to take extensive paid leave for maternity and paternity purposes or for a serious medical illness. Starting in January of 2021, employees can take up to 26 weeks of paid leave. However, all employers must immediately begin withholdings for these benefits starting on October 1, of 2019.

On June 18, 2019, Eckert Seamans hosted a webinar titled “What You Need to Know Now: Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave Law” presented by Members Walter M. Foster and Charlotte L. Bednar, and associate Trevin C. Schmidt.
