Updated leave guidance 
Annexed are three DCAS documents and one NYCHA document for your reference:

CSBA continues to advocate for the ability of our members to telecommute whenever possible. Even when the pandemic finally ends (and we’re most definitely not there yet), we want the option to work from home at least part-time. So much of what we do can be performed at least as effectively and efficiently away from the noise and distractions of the office, as demonstrated by the results over the past year.

Please remember to immediately apprise us of unsafe situations.

Paid Family Leave for 2023

After years of advocacy and negotiation, we became eligible to “opt in” to the New York State Paid Family Leave (“PFL”) plan, as implemented by the City of New York, via the 2017-2021 CSBA – City of New York Memorandum of Agreement.

As of January 1, 2023, the weekly PFL benefit is 67% of pay, capped at a maximum weekly benefit of $1,131.08. PFL allows coverage for up to 12 weeks, up to 67% of the NYS AWW. This coverage is funded via payroll deduction of 0.455% for 2023, up to the maximum annual contribution of $399.43.

For further information on eligibility and qualifying events, please go to the DCAS website and see Personnel Service Bulletin (PSB) 440-16.
