Paid Family Leave Webinars for Health Care Providers

July 31, 2018 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Since the January 1, 2018, launch of New York State’s landmark Paid Family Leave benefit, millions of New Yorkers are now eligible for job-protected, paid time off to bond with a newly born, adopted, or fostered child, care for a family member with a serious health condition, or assist loved ones when a family member is deployed abroad on active military service.

Health care providers play a critical role in certifying medical documentation in a timely manner and raising awareness of Paid Family Leave among their patients and their families.

The New York State Workers’ Compensation Board will be hosting new Paid Family Leave informational webinars for health care providers.  The new webinars provide an overview of the benefit, review the health care provider’s role in medical certification (including who can certify leave and which conditions qualify), and address top questions from providers.
