1. Documents

The Massachusetts Attorney General has posted the following items on her website which will be of interest to employers across the country that have employees who work primarily in Massachusetts that are now subject to the Massachusetts Sick Leave Act (MSLA):

  1. A model employee verification form designed to allow the employee to satisfy their reporting obligations to the employer if the employee uses paid (or unpaid ) sick leave;
  2. A sample sick leave policy that an employer can customize as they see fit; and
  3. An employee notice and poster. There is a poster requirement comparable to the FMLA poster requirement and the employee notice requirement can be complied with by either providing the modal notice or putting similar content in an employee handbook.

The sample policy and verification forms will be found under the “Sample Documents” tab and the sample Poster/Notice can be found under the “Notice for Posting” tab.
