Do Paid Family Leave benefit payments get charged to the fringe budget or to my department?

Paid Family Leave benefits for staff will be charged to the department’s normal payroll budget, in the same way that other paid time off (vacation, sick, etc.) are handled. Paid Family Leave is a State requirement, not part of a benefit plan. Paid Family Leave benefits for student employees, graduate assistants and those whose wages are funded by sponsored accounts will be charged to the fringe benefits budget. If you have questions about how Paid Family Leave will affect your budget, contact the Office of Budget and Planning at bplan@syr.edu.
