Governor Kathy Hochul expands paid family leave

Governor Kathy Hochul has added siblings to the list of family members with serious illnesses that people may take paid family leave to care for.

Hochul is asking Congress to consider the same on a national level.

Before adding siblings, the only approved family members were children, parents, grandparents, spouses, and domestic partners.


Hochul asked federal lawmakers to consider adding a program similar to the social program spending bill that’s currently being figured out.

The paid family leave program gives workers 12 weeks of pay at 67% of their weekly wages.
