NYS Paid Family Leave Program – Important Advance for Caregivers!

The New York State Paid Family Leave program, effective this month, provides paid time off, guaranteed continued health insurance, and job protection for employed New York State residents who care for a family member with a serious health condition, including Alzheimer’s or other dementias.

Nearly one million New Yorkers are caregivers, looking after a family member. Of working caregivers, more than 50% juggle full-time jobs with caregiving.
