On Friday, Governor Baker signed legislation to enact COVID-19 emergency paid sick leave for all Massachusetts employers. Under the new law, employers must provide up to 40 hours of paid sick leave for all employees from now through September 30, 2021. Paid leave can be capped at $850 in paid leave (including benefits) per employee, and the Commonwealth will reimburse employers for this sick leave.
