As Ms. Popper discusses, the year 2017 saw the passage of a slew of new state and local paid leave laws, many of which go beyond what is required under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Employers in these jurisdictions may find that their own policies are not in compliance with these new laws, even when they are more generous than what is required under the FMLA. New laws include amendments to the California Family Rights Act; universal paid leave in Washington, D.C.; and paid family leave in New York State.
