    about

    Paid Family Leave (PFL)

    Effective January 1, 2018, employers in New York State are to provide Paid Family Leave, which is an insured program to provide paid time off for an employee to care for a family member* with a serious health condition, to foster parent-child bonding for an employee’s newborn or newly placed adoptive or foster child, and an employee experiencing any qualifying exigency related to a spouse, domestic partner, child or parent on active military duty.

    Coverage for churches of the Upper New York Annual Conference is being provided through our group coverage policy with The Guardian. Churches will not be billed and there shall be no deductions from employee/clergy salaries.
