Fact Sheet: Paid Family Leave (2014)


Updated 2015 When a family welcomes a new child or a family member has a medical emergency, too many New Yorkers are not able to take paid time off work. Paid Family Leave legislation will support New York workers by guaranteeing paid family leave to bond with their newborns and newly adopted children and to care for seriously ill family members. Paid family leave is good for New York families, good for New York businesses, and good for New York’s economy.
