I received this notification via email. I thought it was a valuable resource on the state’s paid family leave so I am passing it along in case you need the info but did not receive the notice. I hope it is helpful.
Starting next week, the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board will host Paid Family Leave webinars for employers and HR professionals.
Each one-hour session will provide an overview of the state’s landmark Paid Family Leave benefit, including benefit and contribution rate information for 2022, employers’ role in the request process, and updated resources you can use to share Paid Family Leave information with your employees. We’ll also leave time at the end to answer any questions you may have.
Paid Family Leave is employee-paid insurance that provides employees with job-protected, paid time off from work to bond with a new child, care for a family member with a serious health condition, or assist when a spouse, domestic partner, child or parent is deployed abroad on active military service. As of March 2020, Paid Family Leave may also be available in the event an employee, or their minor dependent child, is subject to a mandatory or precautionary order of quarantine or isolation due to COVID-19.
Registration is not required. To join, please select the “Join webinar” link below. Add it to your calendar so you don’t forget!
