Episode 85: Remote Workers: State Leave Protections and Notice Distribution

August 4, 2020

In this episode, Chase Cannon and Suzanne Spradley discuss several compliance challenges relating to remote workers in the pandemic environment. Chase starts by outlining employee eligibility – usually based on work location – in connection with state paid family and medical leave laws. Chase and Suzanne dig in to some recent guidance from Massachusetts regarding employee withholding for state paid family and medical leave for employees temporarily working both inside and outside Massachusetts. The two also discuss how other states’ rules might impact employees working remotely, and how the extension of work from home arrangements might play out with respect to state leave protections. Chase closes by addressing distribution of notices for remote workers, both at the federal and state level.
