NY Paid Family Leave was signed into law in 2016, and went into effect on January 1, 2018. This program, which is the most comprehensive of paid family leave programs in the US, allows eligible employees to take time off to care for a seriously ill family member or spend time with a new child, while receiving a portion of their salary. Employees are also ensured job protection, can retain their health insurance, and are protected against discrimination or retaliation while on leave. Private employers in New York State are required to have PFL in place. If your organization has a disability benefits policy in place, PFL can typically be added to the policy as a rider.
