As a reminder, the Mason Tenders’ District Council Welfare Fund (the “Fund”) has been providing New York Paid Family Leave (PFL) benefits to eligible members covered under the Fund since January 1, 2018 (the effective date of the NYPFL requirement). Accordingly, contributing employers do not need to collect, nor should they collect, PFL premiums from collectively-bargained employees who are participants in the Fund. Note that an employee who has contributions reciprocated from the Fund to another welfare fund pursuant to a reciprocal agreement is not a participant in the Fund and, therefore, is not eligible for PFL coverage from the Fund.
