In 2019, the scientific institute set a goal to implement more-generous paid family and medical leave ahead of the Massachusetts state plan, which goes into effect January 1, 2021. As of January 1, 2020, the company offers employees 12 weeks of paid leave to care for a sick family member. The first two weeks are fully paid, and the remaining time is paid up to $1,000 a week. The state plan requires employers to give only partial payment to workers on leave.
