The Future of Paid Leave in New York


The Future of Paid Leave in New York

New parents and caregivers often have to choose between their paycheck and caring for newborns or seriously ill family members. However, in 2016 New York State passed the strongest Paid Family Leave law in the country, which will allow millions of New Yorkers to take paid time off to bond with a new child or support family members with serious care needs. 
Join WCC and the New York Paid Leave Coalition to find out more about this new benefit, which starts in 2018, and how it will affect your friends, family, and community. An Introduction and Brief History of the Campaign for Paid Family Leave will be presented by Eric Williams, Campaign Director, NY Paid Leave Coalition and a Presentation on the Basics of the New Paid Family Leave Law by Dina Bakst, Co-Founder & Co-President, A Better Balance. 

Donna Dolan, Executive Director, NY Paid Leave Coalition will serve as Moderator. Panelists include: Carol Joyner, Director, Labor Project for Working Families in partnership with FV@W; Rachael Ellison, M.A., Senior Partner, Center for Parental Leave Leadership; Josephine Hargis, Project Director, Paid Family Leave, NYS Workers’ Compensation Board; Simon Isaacs, Co-Founder and Chief Content Officer,; Nancy Rankin, Vice President for Policy, Research and Advocacy, Community Service Society.
