NY - Temporary Family Care Insurance (Paid Family Leave) (2007)
Bill would establish a family temporary care insurance program within the state's disability insurance program for workers who need time off to care for an ill family member, including a child, spouse, sibling, parent, grandparent, or in-law. Workers would be allowed up to 14 weeks off to provide care, including "psychological comfort and arranging third party care," and would receive the same benefit as provided to workers taking disability leave. The bill would also establish a task force to report on the usage, costs, and other evaluations of this family care insurance program.
