Sick Leave Law in New York

Learn to manage New York's sick leave laws to help your company avoid costly litigation.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, New York employers have seen significant paid sick time legislation, and amendments to existing legislation, go into effect. As a result, employers are faced with a web of paid sick leave laws with different purposes, scopes of coverage, accrual rules, and other considerations that can be difficult to untangle. This material will unpack the various paid sick leave laws in New York and help employers understand how to comply with their paid sick leave obligations. This information is critical for employers so that they can ensure that their existing sick time or paid time paid off policies are up-to-date.
