White Paper

Who’s Taking Advantage of New York Paid Family Leave Act?

AmTrust’s team analyzed our initial 2018 claims data to better understand how New York paid family leave was used, and to provide agents and policyholders with meaningful information about how it was being taken.

White Paper Summary

The beginning of 2018 marked the launch of New York’s Paid Family Leave Act (PFL). As the nation’s strongest and most comprehensive paid family leave act to date, agents, employers and employees are all learning to navigate into this new territory.

While the new law is a major step forward for those advocating for better paid leave options for families, employers can be faced with new challenges from a staffing perspective. Knowing how paid family leave is taken can help agents prepare their clients for tracking time off, finding temporary coverage and ensuring compliance with the requirements.
