New York State mandates paid family leave even on small employers; Vermont prohibits social media password demands
New York State has passed a law, starting today, to require employers to offer paid family leave for up to 12 weeks in a variety of circumstances. These appear to include eldercare for parents or family pressures when someone (a spouse) is deployed in the military, as well as birth of a child.
The NBC article (by Pete Williams) did not say if it includes adoption of a child.
Vermont has passed a law, joining about half the states in banning employers from asking social media passwords. ]
