Massachusetts paid family and medical leave (PFML) changes for 2023

The Massachusetts Department of Family and Medical Leave has indicated that rates for Massachusetts PFML will be dropping (again) for the second year in a row. As of January 1, 2023, for groups of 25 and over, the rates will drop from .68% to .63% of employee eligible wages. As of January 1, 2023, for groups under 25, the rates will drop from .344% to .318% of employee-eligible wages. The maximum weekly Massachusetts PFML benefit for 2023 will increase to $1,129.82 from this year’s maximum of $1,084.31. 

As a result of these changes, you will need to update your Massachusetts PFML poster as well as to distribute a new Notice to Workforce informing your employees and covered contract workers about their rights and obligations under the PFML law. A link to the 2023 poster and notice to workforce, as well as additional information about these changes, may be found here.
