The New York State Paid Family Leave (PFL) is an employee paid benefit that provides eight weeks (increasing to 12 weeks by 2021) of job-protected, paid leave within any 52-week period to address family related issues. The program provides wage replacement to employees to help them bond with a child, care for a relative with a serious health condition, or help relieve family pressures when someone is called to active military service.

PFL is set to go into effect on January 1, 2018, but that doesn’t mean employers shouldn’t start preparing now. To make sure you are equipped with everything there is to know about these new regulations, we’d like to direct you to Shelter Point Group, an incredible resource on all things PFL.

Their blog covers topics such as:

  • How PFL and DBL (Statutory short-term Disability Benefits) compare.
  • How early payroll deductions work.
  • The differences between PFL and FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act).
  • How PFL affects dads and paternity leave.
  • And so much more…
