    Effective January 1, 2018 there is a new Paid Family Leave law for those working in the state of New York.

    Here’s what you need to know.

    ·         New York Paid Family Leave (NY PFL) is funded through employee payroll deductions.

    ·         Employees working in the state of New York will contribute 0.126% of their weekly wage, up to the New York State Average Weekly Wage (currently $1,305.92).

    ·         The maximum weekly deduction in 2018 is $1.65.

    ·         NY PFL provides paid time off to:

    o    Bond with a newly born, adopted, or fostered child

    o    Care for a close relative with a serious health condition

    o    Assist when a family member is deployed abroad on active military duty

    ·         In 2018, employees may use up to 8 weeks of NY PFL and receive 50% of their average weekly earnings, up to a maximum weekly benefit of $652.96 during the leave.

    ·         NY PFL will run concurrent with federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave and all other applicable leaves for which an employee is eligible.

    Here’s how to file a claim beginning Jan 1.
