Some hopeful and updated news from our Governor announcing the future of paid leave for parents with a new child. Financial strains that arise from having a new child and taking needed time off to care for a baby can lead parents returning to work before they or their child is ready. The enormous amounts of stress this causes is unneeded, especially at a time when parents' mental health is already vulnerable. Let this pave the way for the rest of the country as this program phases in over the next few years.
“New York enacted the strongest paid family leave plan in the nation to ensure that no one has to choose between losing a job and missing the birth of a child or being able to spend time with a loved one in their final days,” Governor Cuomo said."
