New York Paid Family Leave Amended to Allow Employees to Care for a Sibling

On November 1, Governor Kathy Hochul of New York signed Senate Bill 2928 adding siblings to the list of relationships for which an employee can take leave under the New York Paid Family Leave (NY PFL) program. A “sibling” includes a biological or adopted sibling, a half-sibling, or a stepsibling. Prior to the change, the program allowed an employee to take leave to care for child, parent, grandparent, grandchild, spouse, or domestic partner. The amendment goes into effect January 1, 2023, and applies to all policies or contracts issued, renewed, modified, altered or amended on or after that date.
