As we previously reported, New York’s Paid Family Leave law will take effect on New Year’s Day. Although employers with operations in New York State may be familiar with the eligibility requirements and benefit amounts under the law, they may not know that the law requires them to
- Provide detailed guidance in an employee handbook about employees’ rights and employers' obligations under the law, including the steps to follow in filing a claim for paid family leave.
- Post a notice about the law in a conspicuous place, similar to what is required for workers' compensation and disability insurance coverage.
If you need assistance with compliance, including developing a policy or providing the required notifications, please contact any attorney in Constangy’s offices in New York City or Princeton, New Jersey.
