Paid Family Leave is Coming to New York!

Paid Family Leave (PFL) is becoming a reality for New Yorkers. As you may have heard the 2016-2017 NYS Budget includes legislation enabling the richest Paid Family leave in the nation. Here's what you need to know.....

WHAT:
Paid Family Leave will become effective January 1, 2018 and applies to all private sector employers with at least 1 employee. Employees will be eligible for paid time off to care for a new child or sick family member. This is a mandatory coverage and benefit that all New York State employers will need to provide.

WHEN:
You will start seeing the charge for PFL on your September NYS Disability bill. The cost is 0.126% of the employee's annualized wages capped at the annualized NYS Average Weekly Wage of $67,907.84 a year. This is a uniform rate used by all disability carriers.
