In 2018, Massachusetts signed into law a statute that provides paid family and medical leave (PFML) benefits to all Massachusetts workers. This new law establishes a system for paid family leave of up to 12 weeks to care for a family member and up to 20 weeks for your own illness. The tax will begin on October 1, 2019.
The new PFML law will affect virtually all Massachusetts employers that employ one or more Massachusetts workers, including contractors and “gig economy” employers. The law states that remittance of the tax is the employer’s responsibility and failure to comply may cost your company thousands of dollars in fines.
