NYC Paid Sick Leave Notice

03/26/2014

Following last year’s notice on New York City’s paid sick leave legislation, the state has made updates to the law. Regulations now clarify that employers with 5 or more EES who are hired to work more than 80 hours a calendar year in New York City must provide paid sick leave. Those applicable employers must provide a written notice explaining sick leave to existing employees by May 1, 2014 and to new employees when they begin. Employers with less than 20 employees have until October 1, 2014 to comply with the law without being subject to a penalty.
