This session will assist participants in understanding and applying family leave under the Family Medical Leave Act and NY’s Paid Family Leave. We’ll explore what’s required, challenges in managing the benefit, and common pitfalls. Through case studies drawn from actual experience, we’ll address lessons learned and practical pointers, particularly in effectively navigating the interplay between PFL and other leave and benefit laws (such as FMLA, ADA, and short term disability pay).
