Paid Family Leave Regulations Delivered in Full: Now What?

On July 19, 2017, the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board (the “Board”) released the final rules (the “Final Rules”) regarding the rights and responsibilities of employees, employers, and insurance carriers under the New York Paid Family Leave Benefits Law (the “PFL”). The PFL was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo on April 4, 2016 and goes into effect on January 1, 2018. As discussed in our prior Alerts, the Board released an initial set of proposed regulations on February 22, 2017 and a revised set of proposed regulations on May 24, 2017. In adopting the Final Rules, the Board largely retained the proposed regulations issued on May 24, 2017 but made several technical clarifications.

Please see full Alert below for more information.
