The New York Times Parents published two great guides for workers navigating conversations with their employers regarding parental leave.
“I reached out to A Better Balance when I was confused about what parental leave I might be entitled to—my union had just agreed to opt-in to paid family leave, but no one seemed to have much information about how the program was going to work."
Do you work in a private home, for example as a housekeeper, home health aide, nanny, cleaning person, butler, gardener, or chauffer? Wondering if New York’s paid family leave law applies to you?
Momentum continues to build for paid family and medical leave across the country in the most exciting legislative session for paid family and medical leave bills yet. We’re working with coalition partners on bills across the country, providing drafting assistance and key legal and policy support.
This International Women’s Day please take a moment to learn more about how inclusive workplace policies that recognize the demands of caregiving can help our society maintain a better balance and strengthen communities across the country.
Through the hotline, we help New Yorkers find out if they’re covered under the law, what their rights are, and how to apply.
