The New York State Paid Family Leave (PFL) is an employee paid benefit that provides eight weeks 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 isn’t set to go into effect until January 1, 2018, but that doesn’t mean employers shouldn’t start preparing now. Shelter Point is providing employers concrete steps to take today to help ensure an easier transition to PFL compliance when the time comes. Even before PFL becomes a reality next year, there are steps you can take immediately, and through the end of this year, that can help set your business up for success in addressing PFL.
