New York Paid Family Leave Regulations

25 July 2017 By Barry E. Fields

On Wednesday, July 19th, the New York State Workers Compensation Board posted Final Regulations in regards to New York Paid Family Leave (effective on January 1, 2018). Paid Family Leave coverage will typically be added to an employer’s existing disability insurance policy.

The 2018 community rate is 0.126% of the employee’s gross salary, capped at New York’s current average weekly wage of $1,305. Keep in mind, this coverage is 100% employee paid and only applies if you have a location in New York and they are on NY payroll. You could begin pre-funding via payroll deduction as early as July 1, 2017, but billing will not begin until 2018. Contact your payroll provider if you are unsure of your NYPFL deduction status.
