Paid Family and Medical Leave

We Simplify Paid Family and Medical Leave for Employers

Following federal, state and local rules for employee leaves and accommodations can be overwhelming — especially because each state approaches paid family and medical leave and state disability differently.

We take on the burden of understanding leave compliance and managing employee recovery, so you can focus on your organization's core mission.

How do we do it? With resources like Absence Management Services and Benefits Administration.

We're Tracking Changes to Leave Laws Across the Nation

Here are some of the latest developments we're watching:

A first for Colorado and PFML! State voters passed a paid family and medical leave law — with 57% voting “yes” to ballot measure 283 on Nov. 3. See what comes next.

Two states and PFML programs to keep your eye on: New York and Colorado. New York announced its 2021 PFL premium and benefit increases. And Colorado residents will vote on a Paid Family and Medical Leave Initiative on Nov. 3, 2020. Here’s what you need to know.

Only 60% of employers offer family leave policies — often unpaid. A new study by The Standard and DMEC shows the impacts of caregiving on U.S. workers and the need for more flexible support. A recent webinar also offers solutions that go beyond leave.
