New York Issues Guidance on Paid Sick Leave Law

New York state has just released detailed guidance and answers to frequently asked questions for the new Paid Sick Leave law. The law, which was passed as part of this year’s state budget process, requires all employers to provide sick leave for employees. The amount of leave an employee is entitled to and whether it is paid or not depends on the size of the employer and the number of hours the employee works. Employers should become familiar with the law now, as accrual of sick leave time began on September 30, 2020.
