On Tuesday, the Massachusetts Department of Family and Medical Leave (“DFML”) sent an email to its mailing list reminding employers that they must remit family and medical leave contributions on behalf of their workforce for the pay period of October 1 through December 31, 2019 no later than this Friday, January 31. Contributions for the first quarter of 2020 (January 1 through March 31, 2020) will be due by April 30, 2020.

Contributions are not due from employers who have been approved for an exemption by the DFML. Per a DFML notice issued last week, employers that have received an exemption are also not subject to the Department of Revenue’s PFML-related reporting requirements.

Employers file their return and coordinate payment through their Paid Family and Medical Leave account in MassTax Connect where they will be prompted to enter certain information about each employee, including the percentage of medical and family contributions deducted from wages and the employer’s contributions, as applicable, for each employee. Employers may review the instructions on the DFML website for remitting contributions.
