Paid Family Leave webinar specifically for public employers
Learn about the nation’s strongest and most comprehensive paid family leave and how public employers can opt in at a special Paid Family Leave webinar specifically for public employers.
This one-hour, online session will provide you with an overview of the state’s landmark Paid Family Leave benefit, and the easy process for opting in.
Paid Family Leave is employee-paid insurance that provides employees with job-protected, paid time off from work to bond with a new child, care for a family member with a serious health condition, or assist when a spouse, domestic partner, child or parent is deployed abroad on active military service. Under the New York Paid Family Leave law, it is easy for public employers to opt in to provide access to these benefits for your employees. Those with union-represented employees may provide Paid Family Leave if it is agreed to through collective bargaining.
The one-hour sessions are free and will include time for questions and answers. Dates and times are below. Register for a session here: http://bit.ly/pflwebinar.
Additional Paid Family Leave resources are available
In addition, New York State offers complete details and resources on Paid Family Leave at PaidFamilyLeave.ny.gov, including a special page for public employers. Help is also available via a toll-free Paid Family Leave Helpline at 844-337-6303.
