On March 29, 2019, the Massachusetts Department of Family And Medical Leave is planning to release its next iteration of the proposed Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML) regulations.  The proposed regulations are expected to incorporate many of the comments and feedback received by the Department through public listening sessions and written submissions since the January 23, 2019 release of an early draft of the regulations.
