Everyone should be able to be with the people they love when they need them the most—without risking their economic security. With the help of A Better Balance, as of January 1, 2018, millions of New Yorkers have the right to paid, job-protected time off to bond with a new child, care for a seriously ill or injured family member, or address needs due to a family member’s military deployment. A Better Balance is here to help those workers keep their balance and their jobs.
