Employer Resources for New York State Paid Family Leave posted by the NYS Workers’ Compensation Board

Since first launching in 2018, New York State Paid Family Leave (PFL) has provided critical benefits to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of working New Yorkers and their families. As the Board looks ahead to 2024, there are exciting updates to share!

New! 2024 employee contribution rate and weekly benefit

Good news! Employees will be paying less for PFL in 2024. The employee contribution rate will decrease to 0.373% of an employee’s gross wages each pay period, capped at an annual maximum of $333.25. This is $66.18 less than 2023. Employers may begin taking deductions at the new rate starting January 1, 2024.

Additionally, the maximum weekly benefit for employees taking PFL will rise to $1,151.16 for leave that begins on or after January 1, 2024. This is about $20 more per week than 2023.

Employer resources

New York State has a created several resources to help employers communicate Paid Family Leave updates to your employees.

New York State offers complete details on PFL at PaidFamilyLeave.ny.gov, including a special page with updates for 2024, where you’ll find the above employer resources along with frequently asked questions and other information. You can also view the employer page of the website for additional resources.

Employer webinars
