New York Paid Family Leave and Remote Work Arrangements
October 2017

The New York Paid Family Leave Benefits Law (PFL) will go into effect on January 1, 2018, with important new provisions for employers to address to ensure compliance. This seminar will provide guidance to employers as they navigate the specifics of the PFL, including:

  • Employee eligibility
  • Funding
  • Intersection with existing federal, state and local paid leave laws
  • Risks of non-compliance
  • Related benefits issues

In addition, the seminar will include a discussion on the growing trend of remote work arrangements, which employees commonly request following leaves of absence, and review:

  • Best practices
  • Key policy provisions
  • Risk avoidance tactics

Our "Quick Takes" will cover, among other things:

  • New salary history ban in New York City, going into effect October 31, 2017
  • New York and California overtime laws
  • Recent COBRA litigation
