Massachusetts Employers, Act Fast! Deadline Approaching to Apply for Exemption for Paid Family and Medical Leave Contributions

If you offer a qualifying private plan to your workforce with benefits greater than or equal to those provided by the Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML) law, you can apply for an exemption from collecting, remitting, and paying PFML contributions. Applications for private plan exemptions for the first quarter of contributions must be filed by December 20, 2019. Self-insured employers must provide a bond even if they are granted an exemption. Information on requesting a PFML exemption can be found here.
