New York State Funeral Directors Association

Albany, NY (January 10, 2018)

The New York State Funeral Directors Association will conduct a one-hour webinar focused on New York State's new Paid Family Leave law.

The webinar will begin at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, January 17.

New York State’s Paid Family Leave Law (PFL) took effect on January 1, 2018.

To assist funeral homes in their compliance with this law, NYSFDA Executive Director Michael A. Lanotte will discuss its impact on the workplace and review how to determine employment status for funeral home staff.

Participation in this webinar will yield 1 NYS Law CEU

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Overview of the PFL legislation and recently finalized regulations
  • Coverage and eligibility questions, including waivers
  • Interplay with other employee leave programs and laws
  • Best practices for updating your policies

Employers will also need to ensure individuals are properly categorized as either employees or independent contractors; we'll show you how.

The webinar is FREE for NYSFDA members; non-members may attend for $199.
