Why is Syracuse University implementing Paid Family Leave benefits?

The University is proud to offer family-friendly, comprehensive benefits to our employees to support a healthy work-life balance, including generous paid time off benefits. When events occur that require a short leave of absence, Paid Family Leave can provide partial income replacement and continued access to health benefits. These Paid Family Leave benefits ensure Syracuse University’s compliance with New York State requirements that become effective January 1, 2018 and which apply to most employees.
