Heads up, employers: beginning in 2018, the “New” Paid Family Medical Leave Act for NY will affect every business in the state. If you own a business, you will need to know how this will apply to you and your business! While NYS has not yet determined the details of exactly how the program will work, they are stating that every employer will need to comply with this new law effective 1/1/2018.
Here are a few items that you as an employer will need to be aware of:
- NYS Website for Paid Family Medical Leave
- Resources from ShelterPoint Life Insurance
- Draft Regulations
As NYS has not yet released much info on this program, details are slightly sparse at the moment. We will keep you updated as more information comes out.
