Effective January 1, 2018, New York employers will be required to comply with a new paid family leave law, referred to as the New York Paid Family Leave Benefits Law.  When the new law goes into effect in January, it will provide for a phased-in system of paid family leave benefits.  When fully phased in, the law will provide eligible employees up to 12 weeks of paid family leave paid by a state fund and financed by deductions taken from employees’ wages.  This program will provide information about this new law and will address what New York employers should be thinking about and doing in order to comply with this law.

Ms. Farhangian has successfully represented businesses in employment-related litigation in federal and state court, before government agencies and in mediations and arbitrations.
