Remember your junior year when your English professor lectured about how to write a thesis paper. She assured you itâ€™s complicated, but doable as you methodically define a statement, create structure, an abstract, Table of Contents, writing for an audieurpi3474jdi#……yup, just like that, you were hearing nothing more clearly than Mrs. Donovanâ€™s voiceâ€¦wah wah wah. Yes, Charlie Brownâ€™s teacherâ€™s name is Mrs. Donovan. Do you remember April of your junior year? NO!!Â Because you were feverishly researching how to write a thesis paper that should currently be in almost final draft mode, but you waited and still donâ€™t even have a strong thesis statement!!!
Well, my friends, here we are again, only your assignment is New York PFL. â€œBut, itâ€™s only July!â€ you say. We have six whole months!! Let me rephrase thatâ€¦.you ONLY have six months!!Â Cancel your trip to Camp Okeechobee, because you have work to do. If youâ€™ll hang in there with me, we are going to pick this thing apart together.
Good news:Â There are many similarities that you are already ready for.Â Iâ€™ll touch upon them briefly, but wonâ€™t waste your time.
Bad news:Â Some of the complicated aspects you may not see coming (like when your dad thought heâ€™d be the â€˜cool dadâ€™ and showed up at promâ€¦dressed like Sonny Crockett).
Did you knowâ€¦.
â€¦.you, as the employer may (but are not required) start collecting the employee contribution starting July 1, 2017â€¦THATâ€™S TOMORROW, PEOPLE!!!!
â€¦.there is a cap on the amount of leave an employee receives in any 52 week period, even if they change employers?
â€¦.a part time employee, who does not meet the minimum requirements has to sign a waiver specifically requesting that their employer not deduct the PFL?
â€¦.if that part time employee who signed the waiver becomes eligible, not only may they not waive the contribution, but they now need to start paying it within 8 weeks of the change in schedule, including the retroactive amounts.
These are just a few of the components, but I can see youâ€™re starting to glaze over. Go get yourself some coffee. Iâ€™ll be here when you get back.
