Arch Insurance to Present Webinar on Paid Family Leave Laws in Collaboration With Disability Management Employer Coalition

The Arch presentation will help navigate the paid family and medical leave requirements that are being adopted across the United States


Arch Insurance, a provider of short-term disability insurance and paid family and medical leave (PFML) coverage, has teamed up with the Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC) to present a webinar that highlights the applicable state requirements where PFML coverage is required.

The presentation, “What Employers Need to Know about Statutory PFML Plans,” will be presented online at noon ET on Wednesday, June 22. Arch’s team of disability specialists will help employers understand the PFML requirements in various states, as well as review options outside of state-run programs. They will also help employers and brokers understand what to look for when comparing different plan options and provide an overview of possible federal guidelines.

“Paid leave laws across the nation are changing quickly,” says Thomas Foschino, Vice President of Accident & Health at Arch Insurance. “It can be difficult to keep up, particularly if you are an employer with workers in several states. We want to use this opportunity to help explain various state plans and how they may affect both employees and employers.”

Each year, DMEC publishes the Paid Family and Medical Leave Pulse Survey. The 2021 survey reported that 81% of respondents did business in a state that had a statutory PFML law, and 78% of respondents did business in more than one state with such laws. Additional talk of a federal requirement may make it increasingly difficult for employers to stay up to date on PFML laws and changes.
