April 29, 2021: Massachusetts Paid Family Medical Leave Law 2021 Update

Title: Massachusetts Paid Family Medical Leave Law 2021 Update

Join employment lawyers Kathleen Berney and Mark Macchi of the law firm Hirsch Roberts Weinstein (www.hrwlawyers.com) as they bring us up to date on the MA PFML law, which has now been in effect since January 1, 2021.

The webinar will provide a basic refresher on the law and regulations, including notable updates in the final regulations effective July 24, 2020 (long after HRW first spoke with us about the PFML law).  Topics covered include the differences between private plans and benefits provided by the Department of Family Medical Leave (DFML); intermittent and reduced leave; the importance of a PFML policy and its relationship to your organization’s other leave policies, including FMLA, short-term disability, medical and parental leave. Mark and Kathleen will also touch on employer reimbursements and considerations for optimizing benefits for employees.

There will be time for questions during the presentation.  Members are also encouraged to submit their PFML-related questions in advance to Anne Murphy a.murphy@politicalresearch.org so they can be forwarded to the presenters.

Speakers:  Kathleen Berney and Mark Macchi counsel, train and represent employers of all sizes in a variety of labor and employment issues, including wage and hour compliance, restrictive covenants, discrimination, termination, personnel policies, government and administrative agency proceedings and conduct internal investigations.
