All Massachusetts employers must distribute information to their employees and display a workplace poster that explains Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML).
PFML workforce notifications and posters have been updated to reflect the 2023 maximum benefit amount and contribution rates. Click here to download what you need.
For updated notices: Employers must provide any new employee a notification form within 30 days of hire. Each employee should return a signed form or the employer needs to be able to demonstrate their effort to provide the information to the employee. For current employees who have previously signed a form, employers must provide information on the new contribution rate 30 days in advance of the rate change. The notice may be provided electronically and does not require an updated signature.
For updated posters: You must display the poster at your workplace(s) in a location where it can be easily read. If your workforce is working remotely, you should follow your company policy regarding the display of employment posters.
If 5 or more individuals in your workforce have a primary language other than English, DFML has provided translations for that language, you must display those versions as well.
Translated posters are available from DFML for the following languages:
