Updated Massachusetts Parental Leave

We have changed the title of Massachusetts Maternity Leave policy to Massachusetts Parental Leave and updated the provisions to ensure compliance with an amendment to the Massachusetts Maternity Leave Act (MMLA), effective April 7, 2015.

The amendment extends leave to males as well as females. Further, the MMLA now also covers leave for the placement of a child with an employee pursuant to a court order.
