Paid Family Leave background

Since PFL began in 2018, benefits have been significantly enhanced to further improve the lives of working New Yorkers and their families, including more time off, more uses for PFL, and more financial security.

PFL is employee-paid insurance that provides employees with job-protected, paid time off from work to bond with a new child, care for a family member with a serious health condition, or assist when a spouse, domestic partner, child, or parent is deployed abroad on active military service.  As of March 2020, PFL may also be available in the event an employee, or their minor dependent child, is subject to a mandatory or precautionary order of quarantine or isolation due to COVID-19.

Additional Paid Family Leave resources are available

New York State offers complete details on PFL at, including updates for 2024. The employee page also contains helpful resources, including employee formsfact sheets and past webinars.
