AmTrust’s Paid Family Leave Study Featured in Crain’s New York

Topics: Paid Family Leave

Recently, AmTrust published findings from claims data regarding how New Yorkers are utilizing the new Paid Family Leave benefits, which took effect earlier this year in January.

The launch of New York’s Paid Family Leave Act was the nation’s strongest and most comprehensive paid family leave act to date.
