Video: Amendment to NYC Paid Sick Leave Law

Video Transcript:

Hi I’m Andrew Yacyshyn, employment attorney at Tannenbaum Helpern, and welcome to our HRMinute. Today I’m going to discuss the recent amendments that were passed to the New York City Earned Sick Time Act, which goes into effect on May 5th of 2018. Currently, the law requires New York City employers to provide employees the ability to accrue up to 40 hours of sick leave per calendar year, which can be used when the employee or the employee’s family member is sick or needs care. Now the amendment will expand the scope of the law, and allow employees to take leave for “Safe Time” purposes, when they or their family member is the victim of domestic violence, stalking, or certain other offenses. Given the May 5 effective date is fast approaching, New York City employers should begin reviewing their sick leave and paid time off policies to ensure compliance with the amendment to the law, which will be renamed the Earned Safe and Sick Time Act. Thank you.

In our recent HRMinute, employment attorney Andrew Yacyshyn discusses the amendment to NYC Paid Sick Leave law.
