Bereavement Leave Advocacy Section
The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce has signed a gubernatorial veto letter against expanding Paid Family Leave to include Bereavement Leave. The legislation will extend PFL to anyone who has lost a child, parent, grandparent, grandchild, spouse or domestic partner. The Greater Chamber of Commerce is empathetic to the purpose behind this bill but would like to see restrictions in place to make sure the bill will be limited to avoid abuse. The veto letter can be found here.
