Paid Family & Medical Leave

Paid Family & Medical Leave policies are designed to help employees balance their work and family responsibilities.

What is Paid Family & Medical Leave?

Paid Family & Medical Leave (PFML), Paid Family Leave (PFL), and temporary Disability Insurance (DI) programs are state mandated offerings which enable workers to request a wage replacement benefit if they are sick or hurt and cannot work, or due to a family matter such as bonding with a new child, caring for a family member who has a serious health condition or to address a qualifying military exigency. There are multiple states that have PFML, PFL, or temporary DI laws in place and at least one additional state is expected to move in this direction over the next 12-24 months.

MetLife is committed to providing the most up to date information about these new State Paid Family, Medical, and Disability Leaves to help employers stay compliant with state laws and to help workers obtain the information they need at the most important times in their lives.
