New York’s Workers Compensation Board announced a new series of Paid Family Leave webinars to help employees understand their rights and take advantage of New York’s landmark Paid Family Leave benefit. The new webinars explain how eligible working New Yorkers can enroll for job-protected, paid time off to bond with a child who was born, fostered or adopted within the last 12 months. Instruction includes step-by-step direction about how workers apply for and take leave. The sessions are free and open to the public. Early registration is encouraged as space is limited.
