Proponents have filed a proposed ballot question that would mandate paid family and medical leave for Massachusetts workers. The proposal provides detailed information about the costs of paid leave for employers.


AIM has updated its paid leave cost calculator based upon the actual language of the question. We invite you to use the tool to get an exact version of what paid leave would cost your company.


The ballot question proposes a .63 percent tax on Massachusetts wages (up to the social security taxable wage base  – $127,200 for 2017.) Just enter your company’s total SSI wage base in the highlighted cell, and the calculator will do the rest. 


A great deal can happen between now election day 2018, but AIM believes there is a strong possibility that paid leave will end up before the voters.


Please send us the results. Your information will help AIM formulate a strategy to defeat this proposal.
