Here is an Update to Paid Family Leave: Qualifying Reasons Expanded from Kelly Pressler Giordano.

Update to Paid Family Leave: Qualifying Reasons Expanded
On June 20, 2018, the New York legislature added a new qualifying reason for eligible employees to take advantage of the Paid Family Leave Act.

At the law’s inception, the qualifying reasons were limited to 1) the birth, adoption or new fostering of a child; 2) to provide care for a family member with a serious health condition; or 3) to attend to an exigency arising from a family member’s military service.

The law is being phased in over a period of four years, with full benefits to be available by 2020.

The new amendment to the law provides that by full inception on January 1, 2020, a fourth qualifying act will be available: leave taken for the purposes of bereavement due to the death of a family member. This will be able to be used in one of two ways. First, for employees to take leave due to the death of a family member. Second, for employees already on leave to care for a sick family member, the leave will be extended if and when that family member dies. For these qualifying reasons, “family member” will still be defined as follows: spouse, domestic partner, parent, grandparent, grandchild, child, stepchild, parent-in-law, stepparent, and/or anyone for whom the employee has legal custody.
