New Paid Family Leave Webinars
Starting this month, the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board will begin hosting a series of informational webinars about New York’s landmark Paid Family Leave, which launches on Jan. 1, 2018.
Through Paid Family Leave, eligible employees can take job-protected paid time off to bond with a new child, care for a close relative with a serious health condition, or help relieve family pressures when a family member is called to active military service abroad. Most employees who work for private employers will be eligible, while public employers can choose to opt in.
Two upcoming webinars have been scheduled, one for employees and one for employers:
For Employees: Learn important information about Paid Family Leave benefits, eligibility, request process and more. Wednesday, December 13, 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Register here*
For Employers: Get a general overview of Paid Family Leave as well as important actions you need to take for implementation. Friday, December 15, 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Register here*
*Please note, 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.
Each webinar will be approximately one hour long and will include time for questions and answers. Space is limited, so please register soon. Recordings will be posted on the Paid Family Leave website and additional webinar sessions will be added soon – please watch for details.
