Many Americans would like more flexibility with their jobs in case of a medical emergency in their family. Under the Family Medical Leave Act in New York State, employees that meet the standards set forth by New York State are entitled to twelve weeks of leave without pay. In addition to this act, New York has also created the Paid Family Leave Insurance Act, which entitles an employee to eight weeks off with pay, after meeting similar standards set forth by New York State. In addition to these two programs, I would like to propose that New York State offer an additional program for employees that do not meet the standards for either program by allowing the ability to exchange their vacation, sick days, and holidays in exchange for 3 weeks of medical leave, which would be available from the date of hire.
