Via April De Simone of designing the WE, a social impact design studio:
On a recent visit to New York State, Vice President Joe Biden highlighted the importance of paid family leave. Reflecting on the loss of his son, Beau Biden, to brain cancer, the Vice President spoke to the plight thousands of New Yorkers face when needing time to care for a loved one. Whether it is caring for a child or sick family member, workers should have options that enable them to meet this responsibility without worrying about financial disruptions or job security.
To expand this dialog, the New York Paid Leave Coalition, along with the American Sustainable Business Council will host breakfast forums throughout New York City that will ask: “What will a paid family leave insurance program look like in New York?”

Local businesses taking the lead on paid family leave policies, employees, and other experts will share details on the proposed paid family leave program, including information on ways a paid family leave insurance system could help support businesses and employees. We will also explore what legislation has been proposed, what it will cost and who will pay for it.

If you would like additional information or wish to register for one of our forums, please click on the borough-specific link below. Thank you in advance for sharing this information with your network and we look forward to your attendance.
With Appreciation,
