The Massachusetts Department of Family and Medical Leave recently released draft regulations on paid family and medical leave. The state agency is holding a number of public listening sessions during the month of February, where it is soliciting input on the new Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave law.

Please join a panel of Jackson Lewis attorneys on March 7, 2019 for a program, scheduled to take place at the conclusion of the Agency’s information sessions in February. This timely webinar will provide insight regarding what employers need to know about the new law and the draft regulations.
