NYS New Paid Family Leave Law
New York just became the fifth state to enact a paid family leave law. It’s important to understand that the new law provides mandatory coverage for private sector employees only. Public sector employees will only be covered if their public employer elects to opt-in to coverage. For unionized public employees, this opt-in must be bargained.
No events scheduled.
