New York City’s Earned Sick Time Act (Paid Sick Leave Law) has been passed by the New York City Council and signed into law by Mayor de Blasio. The law will go into effect on April 1, 2014. Under the law, certain employers will have to provide paid sick leave to covered employees.
The Department of Consumer Affairs has prepared a flyer, available here, to provide guidance to employers about their responsibilities under this law. The Lincoln Square BID is not in a position to answer specific questions regarding the details of the new law, but suggests that if you need immediate information, you contact the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs at 311, or visit nyc.gov/PaidSickLeave, where you will find both specific information on the law, as well as a series of Frequently Asked Questions.
