Unlike the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which provides unpaid leave for eligible employees that can be used for their own serious health condition or to care for an immediate family member with a serious health condition, the York State Paid Family Leave Act (NYPFL) does not cover employees who need time off to attend to their own illness. Instead, the law allows employees to care for a loved one with a serious health condition or when a family member is called to active military service.

This response is not legal advice, but is general information only, based upon the information stated in the question and general legal principles. It is provided for general educational purposes of the public who may have similar questions, not for any specific individual or circumstance. It is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. Legal issues depend on all the specific facts of a situation, which are not present here. If you would like to obtain specific legal advice about your issue, you must contact a local attorney who is licensed to practice law in your state.
