Paid Family and Medical Leave law
Updated On: Sep 24, 2019

Good afternoon Members, 

I just wanted to share with you  the floowig information that will effet our paychecks  with pay period  starting October 1, 2019:

On October 1, 2019, contributions to the Department of Family and Medical Leave (DFML) Employment Security Trust Fund will begin. An employer will be responsible for sending contributions to the DFML for all employees.

Currently, the total contribution amount is 00.75% of wages.  Of that 00.75% total contribution amount, there is a split: 17.3% is a family leave contribution and 82.7% is a medical leave contribution.

Under the law, employers are responsible for a minimum of 60% of the medical leave contribution (.372% of wages) but are permitted to deduct from employees’ wages up to 40% of the medical leave contribution (.248% of wages) and up to 100% of the family leave contribution (.13% of wages).

At this time, the Boch Center Wang and Shubert Theaters intends to deduct the maximum amounts allowable under the Law from the wages of employees in the bargaining unit represented by Local B-4. I am awaiting response from ATG  and BOH Mgmt. on how they will be handling these new and lawful deductions.

Effective Rates: 2019
