Webinar Recording: Ready or Not, Here It Comes! Massachusetts PFML

Jennifer NelsonResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


As if navigating a global pandemic wasn’t already challenging enough, employers now have the added struggle of managing the proposed new laws coming to the state of Massachusetts. Ready or not, Massachusetts’ new paid family and medical leave benefits are available as of Jan. 1, 2021! In this session, we explored the distinctions between the state and private plans, and what to expect based on the decision that you made.

This webinar gave attendees a full picture of this law and how it impacts your employees. We discussed the provisions of the law, including tips and guidance for what to consider based on your decision whether to utilize the state plan or select a private plan option. In addition, we covered what to expect when an employee files a Massachusetts PFML claim, how claims will be administered, how to coordinate the benefits with STD, LTD, FMLA and other benefit plans, and more!
