To help parents balance work and family obligations, three states have enacted Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML) laws in recent years. These laws, which are common in the rest of the world, allow workers to take paid time off to care for a new born child, or an ill parent, or when they have a serious illness. MassBudget's new fact sheet FAQ: Paid Family and Medical Leave describes these laws and employer policies. It explains what PFML is, how it works, how it affects families and businesses, and how it relates to other policies like Earned Paid Sick Time.
The Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center (MassBudget) produces policy research, analysis, and data-driven recommendations focused on improving the lives of low- and middle-income children and adults, strengthening our state's economy, and enhancing the quality of life in Massachusetts.
