Starting on July 1, 2015, Massachusetts employers with 11 or more employees must begin providing paid sick leave. Click here for a summary of the new law's key features.

Both employers and employees should review their rights and responsibilities under the new law carefully. Notably, good record-keeping of hours worked and accrued leave will be essential. 

Employers should also be aware that employees still retain their FMLA rights under federal law. Furthermore, when documenting the use of sick leave employers should bear in mind the need to comply with both HIPAA and Massachusetts data security and personal information privacy standards, when dealing with employee medical information.
