Webinar Academy Series Presents: Answers to Your NY Paid Family Leave Questions

October 19, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


We know that NY employers will be required to provide paid leave to NY employees to care for new, seriously ill and military family members beginning January 1, 2018.
We know the start-up of any new program can be overwhelming.
We know you still have lots of questions as you prepare to implement and administer NY Paid Family Leave.

Based on the latest information from New York State and the insurance community, Chernoff Diamond is hosting this 1-hour webinar to answer many questions about the NY Paid Family Leave program you may have. This webinar will answer questions on a variety of topics such as:

  • Eligibility: Out-of-state, variable hour and seasonal employees, leaves-of-absence during the eligibility period, and status changes from part-time to full-time
  • Contributions and Premiums: What to withhold, taxation, when to begin deductions, opt-outs and carrier billing
  • Benefit Payments: How is the amount determined, weekly and intermittent benefits, office closings and holidays, claim filing process and employer and employee responsibilities
  • Managing Time Off Policies: Coordinating with FMLA, employer paid time off, NYC earned sick time, DBL, STD, maternity/paternity leaves
  • Action Steps: What’s an employer to do now?
