    The Massachusetts Department of Paid Family & Medical Leave has posted an announcement regarding the three month delay for the Paid Family & Medical Leave (PFML) employer contributions. 

    It was announced earlier this week that the Governor, the Senate President, and the Speaker of the House signed an agreement to delay the employer contributions that were supposed to start on July 1, 2019 until October 1, 2019. 

    In the announcement they confirmed that there is a corresponding three month delay for an employer’s requirement to provide each employee with a Paid Family Medical Leave Notice.  Also, the announcement confirmed that the Department will increase the employer contribution rate from .63% to .75% of employee wages in order to ensure the delayed funding does not impact the ability to pay benefits starting next year. 

    The announcement also stated that the final regulations will be posted to their website by June 17, 2019. 

    Thank you to Scott Moore, Esq of Moore EMS Consulting for providing this update.

    Beginning on April 1st, 2019 MassDOT will begin a two-year rehabilitation project of the Tobin Bridge and Chelsea Viaduct which together carry Route 1 through Chelsea, over the Mystic River, and into Boston.  This project, known as the Tobin Bridge/Chelsea Curves Rehabilitation will, ensure that the elevated portions of Route 1 which have not been significantly rehabilitated since the 1970’s can continue to safely and efficiently carry passenger and freight traffic in and out of Boston. 

    This vital project will have inevitable traffic impacts.  To learn more and sign up to receive email updates regarding project progress, please see the attached fact sheet and visit:
