Effective January 1, 2018, most employees who work in New York State for private employers are eligible to take Paid Family Leave, [see Workers' Compensation Law §200 et. seq., The Disability Benefits Law and the Paid Family Leave Benefits Law]. In addition, many public employers provide Paid Family Leave.

New York’s paid family leave law provides job-protected, paid time off so employees can bond with a newly born, adopted or fostered child; care for a close relative with a serious health condition; or assist loved ones when a family member is deployed abroad on active military service.

The employee is able to continue his or her health insurance while on leave and is guaranteed the same or a comparable job after the leave ends. If the employee contribute to the cost of health insurance, he or she must continue to pay the premium cost while on Paid Family Leave.
