You may have heard that employers needed to go back to the MassTaxConnect website to amend the approved exemption filing by uploading a copy of the Paid Family and Medical Leave Policy. At this point, the DFML is no longer requiring employers to submit their policy prior to the exemption renewal date. The DFML will request policy form numbers from employers at the time of exemption renewal and will update its website to describe these procedures. Sign up here
to receive updates when these procedures get posted.
It’s important to remember that you will need to renew your Private Plan exemption every year!
Time flies! So we will remind you when it’s time for the renewal and guide you through that process.**
**ShelterPoint Life is under no legal obligation to provide employers/policyholders with a reminder to renew their annual private plan exemption with the DFML, and ShelterPoint Life assumes no responsibility or liability for failure to issue any such reminder notice to an employer/policyholder, nor does it guarantee the accuracy of the information provided in any such reminder notice. It remains the sole responsibility of the employer/policyholder to remain independently informed of their private plan exemption renewal date and to timely file a renewal of its private plan exemption as set forth in, and in accordance with, any and all MA PFML laws and regulations.
