Paid Family Leave Law July 1 Deductions

Please be aware of the requirements for the NY Paid Family Law, which goes into effect January 1, 2018. The leave is paid for with deductions from employees’ wages, which are remitted to either your private short term disability insurance carrier, or to the state insurance fund.  Although the law does not take effect until January 1, 2018, employees should begin to accumulate enough money in the insurance fund to be able to take paid family leave (PFL) as soon as they are eligible.  The regulations, therefore, permit employers to begin making deductions on July 1, 2017.
