New York State Paid Family Leave Law: 7 Must Knows

The New York State Worker’s Compensation Board, on February 22, 2017, has released proposed regulations regarding the upcoming 2018 Paid Family Leave Law. As stated, employees will be eligible for 12-weeks of paid family leave:

  • Leave to care for a child after birth or placement for adoption or foster care within the first 12-months after the birth or placement (may take leave before placement or adoption)
  • A qualifying exigency arising from the service of a family member in the armed forces of the U.S
  • To care for a family member with a serious health condition (illness, injury, impairment, or physical or mental condition that involves inpatient care in a hospital, hospice or residential health care facility)

As we move closer to the rollout date of January 1, 2018, it is important to know the requirements as regulated in New York State.
