Barclay Damon attorney, Michael J. Sciotti will present, "NYS Paid Family Leave Act: How Employers Can Prepare for 2018" on Wednesday, June 21, 2017. Effective January 1, 2018, all private employers (even those who are not subject to FMLA) with employees domiciled in New York State will be mandated to provide Paid Family Leave (PFL) benefits to both full-time and part-time employees. While this legislation has similarities to federal FMLA, there are many differences. It’s important that you understand the legislation and what it means for you, as an employer.

Topics to be Discussed:

  • What employers fall under the law?
  • What are the new benefits for employees?
  • Who bears the cost?
  • What will the cost be?
  • How does this tie to NYS Disability benefits and coverage?
  • To FMLA for eligible employers?
  • How does it impact an employer's vacation, sick or time off policies?
  • What are the impacts to an employer beyond the cost of the program?
  • Sample claim scenarios
  • Maternity and paternity, what changes?
  • Sample communication materials employers can use with employees
