Gain an understanding of New York's new paid family leave law and learn how to keep your company compliant.
On July 19, 2017, the New York State Workers' Compensation Board adopted final regulations to implement the New York State Paid Family Leave Benefits Law (PFL). Although the PFL is not effective until January 1, 2018, the final regulations are effective immediately. To ensure legal compliance - and to avoid potential liability - covered employers must navigate the complexities of the PFL to ensure proper administration and successful integration of the new leave law with the existing local, state, and federal leave laws.
This material will provide a general understanding of the employers and employees to whom the PFL applies. The content will also clarify the qualifying circumstances and events for which an employee may apply for PFL benefits. Because the PFL is one of many leave laws potentially applicable to New York State and New York City employers and employees, this topic will address how the PFL may interact with other leave laws and provide guidance on proper administration of the PFL with existing federal, state, and local leave laws.
- You will be able to define covered employers and eligible employees under the PFL.
- You will be able to identify certain federal, state, and local laws that interact with the application and administration of the PFL.
- You will be able to recognize the qualifying events covered under the PFL and events that are not covered under the PFL.
- You will be able to explain the documentation and certification required for each qualifying event for which an employee claims PFL benefits.
