Gov Cuomo Signs Paid Family Leave Bill

In April 2016, Governor Cuomo signed a bill which will guarantee 12 weeks of partially paid family leave for NY State workers, to take full effect of 67% salary by 2021. This legislation also raises the minimum wage to $15 over the next several years. It’s important to note that family leave provides for paid leave for the care of a new child as well as any family member needing care. Let’s hope this sets a precedent for other states to join CA, WA, RI, NJ, D.C., and now NY in securing family and medical leave benefits.
