Please join us for a Paid Family Leave informational webinar for employees!

The Workers’ Compensation Board is pleased to bring you a Paid Family Leave webinar series on the following leave types:


  • Family Care
  • Military
  • Bonding with a newly born, adopted, or fostered child


Each one-hour, online session will provide an overview of Paid Family Leave specific to that leave type as well as eligibility, how to apply, a walkthrough of the required forms and documentation, and frequently asked questions. We will leave time at the end for any additional questions.

Registration is not required. To join, please select the "Join Webinar" link below. Add it to your calendar so you don't forget!

As of January 1, 2021, Paid Family Leave is in the final year of a four-year phased in approach. Over the last four years, benefits have been significantly enhanced to further improve the lives of working New Yorkers and their families, including more time off, more uses for Paid Family Leave, and more financial security.

Paid Family Leave 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, Paid Family Leave 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.
