MA Parental Leave Compliance Deadline April 7, 2015

By April 28, 2015No Comments

Have you updated your maternity leave policy to reflect the new Parental Leave Act? The new law, which took effect April 7, 2015, replaces the Massachusetts Maternity Leave Act (MMLA), which provided only female employees with eight weeks of job-protected leave for the birth or adoption of a child. The new law extends this parental leave to male employees as well, so you need to revise your maternity leave policy accordingly. For more information, read our e-Alert, “New Massachusetts Law Grants Parental Leave to Men.” If you are an HR Knowledge full-service client, please contact us for assistance in updating your current policy.
