As we previously informed you, a deal was reached to delay the July 1st start date for employer contributions to the new Massachusetts Paid Family Leave program for three months.
The new legislation has now been officially enacted and it does the following:
- Required withholdings will begin on October 1, 2019.
- The new contribution rate is 0.75 %, adjusted up from 0.63%. This is to account for the delay in collecting contributions.
