NYS Paid Family Leave

New York State Paid Family Leave (PFL)

Beginning January 1, 2018, the New York State Paid Family Leave (PFL) Program will provide New Yorkers with paid leave to bond with a new child, care for a loved one with a serious health condition or to help relieve family pressures when someone is called to active military service.

The law—and what it means for employers, insurance carriers, and employees—is still developing (more on that, here).

It's important that all private employers with more than one employee prepare for:

1. compliance with the legislation; and

2. what PFL will mean to your business.
