On May 1st, the Commonwealth’s Department of Family and Medical Leave announced that the deadline for the employer notice to employees has been extended from May 31, 2019 to June 30, 2019. The notice, which may be provided electronically, must include the opportunity for an employee or self-employed individual (which would include independent contractors) to acknowledge receipt or decline to acknowledge receipt of the information.
It is anticipated that the Department will be publishing further updates as the final regulations deadline of July 1, 2019 approaches. We will continue to provide updates as appropriate.
If you have any questions on the above requirements or concerning the Commonwealth’s Paid Family and Medical Leave Law, please contact any member of Mirick O’Connell’s Labor, Employment and Employee Benefits Group.
