Paid Family Leave

According to today's Boston Globe, Senate President Robert Travaglini will unveil new legislation tomorrow designed to provide paid leave for "all workers in Massachusetts up to 12 weeks' paid time off to care for newborn and adopted children or sick family members, financed by an employee payroll premium of at least $1.50 a week." We'll be watching this closely, and will provide a link to the bill as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, you can find more information on current leave laws at Mass.
