Opportunity to Better Understand NYS Paid Family Leave Law


Opportunity to Better Understand NYS Paid Family Leave Law 
Source: NY Muni Blog

New York State is set to enact the strongest paid family leave program in the country.  The program, New York’s Paid Family Leave Law (“PFL”), takes effect January 1, 2018, and will provide New Yorkers job-protected, paid leave to care for a loved one who is seriously ill, bond with a new child, or help the family when a member is deployed for military service. Nearly every private employee in New York will be eligible to receive benefits—and there are many implications for business owners. 

Harris Beach Labor and Employment Law Attorney Ibrahim Tariq will present on employers’ most frequently asked Paid Family Leave questions and best practices for businesses day-to-day PFL administration. Mr. Tariq has been in contact with staff counsel at the Workers’ Compensation Board this fall over numerous PFL questions. He will share and provide input on the latest highlights that New York employers need to know to comply with the Department of Labor’s PFL requirements. PFL is one of three labor and employment topics at the seminar, including updates on the Affordable Care Act, and the latest updates from the National Labor Relations Board.
