New York State Paid Family Leave (PFL) is an employee paid benefit that will provide 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 is set to go into effect on January 1, 2018, but that doesn’t mean employers shouldn’t start preparing NOW. As an employer, we suggest you begin preparations for these new requirements by reviewing and revising current policies and practices. Creating new comprehensive policies will ensure full compliance with the law’s requirements, including the leave of absence and job reinstatement provisions.
