On April 4, 2016, Governor Cuomo signed the New York Paid Family Leave Law. The legislation will provide wages to employees of private employers so that the employees can go out on leave for several family and medical reasons. Small business owners should take immediate steps to prepare for the program’s implementation on January 1, 2018. Both full and part-time employees of private companies are eligible and participation by employees and employers is mandatory. Representatives from ADP will provide detailed information about the program and answer questions.
