Are TON Employees eligible for MA Paid Family Medical Leave (PFMLA)?

The Town is excluded from the new PFML law. We follow the federal family leave act regulations (FMLA), which provide for 12 weeks of unpaid leave. An employee may elect to use accrued leave during their FMLA leave, either to receive their full paycheck or to only cover deductions. Employees are permitted to use all accrued leave available to them during an FMLA leave (vacation, personal, sick). In the event that an employee does not have sufficient accruals, they may be able to apply for donations from the Union sick bank (for union employees).
