Paid Family Leave

Beginning January 6, 2019, DOE employees in titles represented by DC 37 may be eligible to take up to ten weeks of DC 37 Paid Family Leave (PFL) under the New York State Paid Family Leave program.

Paid Family Leave provides job-protected, paid time off so you can:

  • Bond with a newly born, adopted or fostered child,
  • Care for a close relative with a serious health condition, or
  • Assist with family situations when a family member is deployed abroad on active military service.

For more information about Paid Family Leave (including instructions on how to apply), please visit the HR Connect Employee Portal. Once you have logged in with your DOE User ID and Password, search for "Paid Family Leave."
