Program Overview

Effective January 2018, employers of all sizes in New York will need to provide their employees with paid family leave benefits.  The new law also extends job protection to those receiving benefits, expanding the types of qualifying events and the size of covered employers beyond the requirements of the Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA),  As 2018 rapidly approaches, there are several aspects of New York’s sweeping legislation that employers should consider and address now.

Most significantly, the Workers’ Compensation Board recently published final regulations implementing the law.  These regulations are detailed, complicated and will require changes in employers’ policies and practices.  The regulations also permit employers to begin collecting employee contributions for paid family leave coverage before January 2018.

Topics that will be addressed include:

  • An in-depth description of the requirements of the law and regulations
  • A summary of the recent guidance and anticipated guidance associated with the law and regulations
  • How the law and regulations compare with the FMLA
  • Employer options regarding how benefits are paid to employees
  • Collecting employee contributions before January 2018
  • The additional steps that employers should take between now and January 2018
