How New York’s New Paid Family Leave Impacts Your Organization (Even If You’re Not in NY)

Just in case you missed it: Effective January 1, 2018, New York is requiring employers to provide Paid Family Leave (PFL), which will cover up to 8 weeks of paid leave, increasing with time, and may be used alongside the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) benefit. While this is great news for employees, the change is causing uncertainty among employers who are not always sure how to remain compliant or how to manage employee absences on top of other benefits like FMLA, Short-Term Disability (STD) and Long-Term Disability (LTD).
