New York enacted PFL in 2016 and implemented the program in phases over 4 years.
New York does not have a state-administered fund for Paid Family Leave. The state partners with a vendor carrier, New York State Insurance Company, to administer DBL and Paid Family Leave benefits. Employers must work with the NY State Insurance Fund, a private insurance carrier or self-fund their own DBL and PFL program – with state approval. While employers will self-administer Paid Sick Leave, The Hartford will administer both Statutory Disability and Paid Family Leave benefits.
