Support Paid Family Leave in New York

Sign the petition and share why paid leave is important to you. 

The Paid Family Leave Insurance Act would provide up to 12 weeks of paid leave to bond with a new child, care for a seriously ill family member, and deal with issues that arise when a family member is called to active military service.The legislation would create a paid family leave insurance benefit and modernize New York’s Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI) program, the critical support system for new mothers physically recovering from childbirth, which is currently frozen at the 1989 rate of $170 per week.
