On February 20th, Deanne Braveman, who served as the chief lobbyist for the New York Paid Family Leave Campaign, will present, “The New York Paid Family Leave Act: Not Just for New Mothers” webinar for Lawline.com.
This course will look at the details of the newly enacted Paid Family Leave law and regulations, passed as part of the 2016-17 budget. The new law provides the opportunity for paid time off to bond with a new child, care for a seriously ill family member, or deal with issues arising from active military service for those working in New York State. Paid Family Leave benefits will begin on January 1, 2018 with the benefits increasing through 2021. It is important for employers and individuals to understand their obligations under the law, when the leave can be utilized, and what rate of wage replacement is available during the leave.
