As of January 1, 2018, Paid Family Leave is now available for eligible employees in New York State. Paid Family Leave provides job-protected, paid time off to bond with a new child, care for a family member with a serious health condition, or assist loved ones if a family member is called to active military service abroad.
The New York State Workers’ Compensation Board will be hosting a new series of webinars on each type of leave, covering eligibility, frequently asked questions and how to apply, including a walk-through of the required forms and supporting documentation.
Each webinar will be approximately one hour long and will include time for questions and answers. Space is limited, so please register soon. When you click ‘register here’, you will be taken to a general information page. You must click ‘Register’ on the bottom of that page to sign up.
