NYS Paid Family Leave

NYS Paid Family Leave (PFL) was signed into law in 2016. As of January 1, 2019, PFL is available to Management/Confidential (MC13) and UUP (08) represented employees.

The purpose of PFL is to help employees with work-life balance by providing a paid leave alternative to charging paid leave accruals for leaves of absence to attend to family needs associated with:

  • the birth or placement of a biological, adopted, or foster child (first 12 months)
  • a family member's serious health condition (physical or psychological care)
  • a call to active duty in the U.S. armed forces (qualifying exigency)

PFL is not available for an employee's own serious health condition or military activation.
