Massachusetts Leave Laws Made Simple

April 5, 2024 at 9:00am12:00pm (EDT)

In Massachusetts, employees are eligible for paid and unpaid leave in a range of situations, benefiting from the protection of a myriad of state and federal laws. These include the Massachusetts Paid Family and Medical Leave Act (PFML), Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Massachusetts Earned Sick Time Law, Massachusetts Domestic Violence Leave Act (DVLA), and the Massachusetts Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA), among others. Often, these leave laws intersect with each other, creating many questions for employers and employees. 

Attorney Carla Reeves will join a group of panelists to discuss the contours of each law and their intersection, as well as their interplay with employers’ private plans and policies. The panel will provide hypothetical examples to highlight the practical nuances seen in the workplace.
