Paid Family Leave Update
As you know, the PFL regulations require employers to notify employees of their rights under the law.
This notification will generally take three forms:
- Notice of Compliance – Paid Family Leave (PFL-120) – a certificate that indicates you have obtained the necessary PFL insurance or have a Board approved self-insurance plan. This must be posted in a conspicuous location. It is only available from your insurance carrier or, if self-insured, from the Workers’ Compensation Board;
- Statement of Rights for Paid Family Leave (PFL-271S) – a discussion of employee rights under the law;
- Handbook revisions – If you have an employee handbook, the regulations require that it be amended to notify employees of their rights under PFL.
The two notices should be posted by 1/1/2018. Employee handbook revisions should be completed as soon as possible.
