New York Family Leave Insurance

New York Family Leave Insurance (FLI), or Paid Family Leave (PFL), is a state mandated coverage for most private employers. The coverage is funded by employee payroll contributions. The coverage can be used for wage replacement and job protection to employees who need time off due to:

  • Bonding with a new child
  • Caring for a family member due to a health condition
  • Assisting when a family member is deployed on active duty

How can I set up FLI?

Coverage for FLI can often be secured or included with your existing benefits disability policy. Reach out to your insurance carrier for more information.

How can TriNet help with FLI?

TriNet can help with calculating the employee payroll deductions. However, remitting the payments will be the employer's responsibility. Once you have secured coverage with the insurance carrier, you can set FLI deductions up in TriNet.

Where can I learn more about FLI?
