In essence, out-of-state employees CANNOT be covered under the Paid Family Leave Rider – unlike with New York’s statutory disability (DBL). Although PFL is built on the DBL platform and tied to DBL, the PFL program is intended to stand alone and to insure only workers in NY.
We frequently receive questions about NY-based employers with employees outside of NY – most of center around these concerns:
*If employing at least 1 employee for 30+ days each in a calendar year in New York whether working at a local NY work site or working remotely from NY (for example, telecommuting from home in NY.)
**Optional coverage must be provided to all eligible employees by the employer; it is not on an individual basis.
