AIM Webinar on Paid Family Leave

The Massachusetts Legislature is considering a bill that would establish the right of employees to receive job-protected paid family and paid medical leave. Advocates have indicated that they will put the issue on the 2018 statewide ballot if the Legislature does not pass it.

The bill would provide benefits that include up to 16 weeks of paid family leave, and 26 weeks of paid medical leave. Weekly benefits are 50 percent of the employee’s weekly wage and capped at $1,000 per week.

What does all this mean to your company? What are the costs? What are the chances that the bill will pass?

To learn more, join Brad McDougall and John Regan from AIM for a Brown bag webinar at no cost.
