Paid Family Leave: New York, Massachusetts & Connecticut
Most private employers in New York State, Massachusetts, and Connecticut with one or more employees are required to obtain Paid Family Leave (PFL) insurance.
Employees can typically use the benefit to
- Bond with a newborn, adopted, or foster-care child during the first 12 months after birth or placement
- Care for a seriously ill family member
- Address important needs related to a family member’s military service
In Massachusetts and Connecticut, employees can also take time for their own serious health concerns.
Employees pay for PFL benefits through a small payroll deduction, a percentage of their wages up to an annually set cap. Employers may choose to cover the cost themselves.
