PFML Update: 2022 Workplace posters and notifications available for download

All Massachusetts employers must distribute information to their employees and display a workplace poster that explains Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML).

The Department of Family and Medical Leave has updated the necessary notifications and posters so that they reflect the 2022 maximum benefit amount and contribution rates. Click here to download what you need.

For updated notices: Employers must provide any new employee a notification form within 30 days of hire.  Each employee should return a signed form or the employer needs to be able to demonstrate their effort to provide the information to the employee. For current employees who have previously signed a form, employers must provide information on the new contribution rate 30 days in advance of the rate change. The notice may be provided electronically and does not require an updated signature.

For updated posters: You must display the poster at your workplace in a location where it can be easily read. If your workforce is working remotely, you should follow your company policy regarding the display of employment posters.

If 5 or more individuals in your workforce have a primary language other than English and DFML has provided translations for that language, you must display those versions as well. 
Translated posters are available from DFML for the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Italian, Khmer, Korean, Lao, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese.
