This calculator is meant to help employers estimate their Paid Family and Medical Leave contribution responsibility.

Table of Contents


If you're a Massachusetts employer with a workforce of any size, you're required to begin withholding Paid Family and Medical Leave contributions from covered individuals' wages beginning Oct. 1, 2019.

Your contribution responsibilities depend on your average number of covered individuals from the last calendar year (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31). All employers are required to submit contributions on behalf of their covered individuals while larger employers may also be responsible for paying a share of the required contributions.

This calculator will help you answer 2 questions necessary for determining your contribution responsibilities:

  1. Whether or not your 1099-MISC contractors are considered covered individuals
  2. Whether or not you're responsible for paying a share of the contributions
