Starting January 1, 2018, nearly all private employees in New York State are eligible for Paid Family Leave (PFL). PFL provides New Yorkers job-protected, 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.
As an employer:
- Ensure your company has PFL coverage
- Update your payroll processes to collect employee contributions
- Inform ineligible employees about waivers
- Post an employee notice from your insurance carrier (Form PFL-120) stating that you have PFL insurance
