Paid Family Leave (PFL)
Effective January 1, 2019, all UUP and MC-13 and 06 employees are eligible for and required to participate in the new Paid Family Leave benefit through New York State.
Paid Family Leave will provide paid time off so an employee can:
- Bond with a newly born, adopted, or fostered child
- Care for a family member with a serious health condition
- Assist loved ones when a family member is deployed abroad on active military duty
Employee payroll deductions fund the program. For 2019, the contribution is 0.153% of gross biweekly wages, up to and not to exceed an annual maximum employee contribution of $107.97. This deduction will begin no sooner than January 1, 2019.
