CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Grillo's Pickles

If you haven't been to the Grillo's Pickles website, you should. There, you'll find the fantastic story of how this company began. We've copied part of it here to save you a click.

Grillo's Pickles began with a pickle cart, just a small wooden stand in downtown Boston, where Travis Grillo and his friends would sell two spears for one dollar. Travis would make the pickles by night using his family's 100-year old recipe - one he'd memorized from making pickles every summer as a kid. In the morning, Travis would bike to the Boston Common and set up the cart with his buddies. They'd hang out all day, urging people to try the simple Grillo family pickle. It was a small business but Travis worked hard for it. He made more pickles, biked more miles, and slept less hours than he ever had before.

CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Luca + Danni

Fred and Danny Magnanimi grew up watching their father create beautiful, handcrafted jewelry in the family's Cranston, RI jewelry manufacturing business. When the boys grew up, Fred moved to New York and began working on Wall Street as an investment banker, while younger brother Danny, still enamored by the family business, stayed home.

        Update: Massachusetts Paid Family And Medical Leave - Deadline For Employer Contributions Extended To October 1, 2019

        As has been widely rumored, the Commonwealth has decided to delay the July 1 implementation of the Massachusetts paid family and medical leave law (“PFML”). A joint statement by Massachusetts Governor, Charlie Baker, Senate President, Karen Spilka, and House Speaker, Robert DeLeo explains:

        [T]he deadline to begin employer contributions to the PFML program has been extended to October 1, 2019. This extension means that employers do not have to make their required employer contributions or deduct the employee portion of the contribution from employee wages by the prior July 1, 2019 deadline. Employers will now have three additional months to internally implement the program and educate employees of the corresponding payroll deductions. Meanwhile, the Massachusetts Legislature will adopt changes to the PFML law to clarify the program’s design with the intention that the program be successfully implemented this fall.

        For a refresher on the PFML, our prior Client Alerts are available here. We will continue to keep you informed of future clarifications and revisions to this law over the coming months.
