New York State Paid Family Leave Program - Starting January 1, 2018



The New York State Paid Family Leave program goes into effect on January 1, 2018. In preparation for this change we suggest that you:

Confirm that your disability insurance carrier will continue to provide coverage to clients in New York State. In the event that you need to find a new carrier, we can assist you. Please contact Teresa Solano at (585) 410-6733 ext. 123 or via email, tsolano@alliedfp.com.

Review your employee eligibility status. An Employee Opt-out waiver must be completed for any employee who is not eligible for Paid Family Leave.

The Paid Family Leave Waiver can be found on our website or by clicking here.
  • Send the completed and signed waiver to your insurance carrier.
  • Send a copy completed and signed waiver to your payroll specialist.
  • Maintain a copy of the completed and signed waiver for your records.

Please note: High school students are exempt from Paid Family Leave and ARE NOT REQUIRED to complete the PFL Waiver. It is the employer's responsibility to notify Allied Payroll Services as well as your insurance carrier upon an employee's change in status.

Inform your employees about Paid Family Leave.
  • Update appropriate written materials such as employee handbooks, to include Paid Family Leave information.
  • Share the New York State weekly paid family leave payroll deduction calculator with your employees so that they can determine how their paycheck will be affected. 
  • Post a workforce notice, this should be provided to you by your insurance carrier.

***Paid Family Leave payroll deductions will automatically begin on January 1, 2018 for all employees for whom we have not received an opt-out form or notification of their high school student status.
