Law Firm to Present Free Paid Family and Medical Leave Webinars for Employers

Skoler, Abbott & Presser, P.C. announced it will hold two complimentary webinars in December to help employers prepare for the new Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML) program. “On January 1, 2021, PFML will be a reality in Massachusetts,” said attorney John Gannon, a partner at Skoler Abbott. “Once the program takes effect, Massachusetts employees will be eligible to take up to 12 weeks of paid family leave — up to 26 weeks in certain circumstances — and up to 20 weeks of paid medical leave. We expect that employees will immediately start filing claims, as many may have been waiting for PFML to go live before requesting leave.”
