The New York state Assembly has again passed legislation to allow workers to take up to 12 weeks of paid time off to care for a new child or a sick loved one. The measure endorsed Tuesday would be funded by a weekly employee payroll deduction that would start at 45 cents in the first year. When fully phased in, the maximum weekly benefit would be capped at $633. The measure has run into trouble in the Senate before, but this year supporters are optimistic.
