DCA - Paid Sick Leave: Day of Action

On February 26, 2014 the New York City Council passed legislation to broaden and accelerate implementation of the Paid Sick Leave law that was adopted last year. Mayor de Blasio has signed the amended legislation into law.      

Effective April 1st, all New York City employers with five or more employees who are hired to work more than 80 hours a calendar year in New York City must provide paid sick leave. Employers with less than five employees must provide unpaid sick leave. On July 30, 2014, New Yorkers can start using earned leave under this new law.  

This law now gives employees in New York City, including those that work for non-profits and small businesses, the right to take sick leave to care for themselves or a family member.  The New York City Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) wants all New Yorkers to know about this important right – and they need your help.

On Wednesday, July 16th, join DCA for their ‘Day of Action’ to let other local businesses and residents know about their right to sick leave. As a volunteer, you will be stationed at a subway station or high-traffic transit hub to distribute materials and spread the word about paid sick leave. Click here to register.

About Paid Sick Leave - For Employers

If you are an employer, including a nonprofit or small business, you must provide:
   • Paid sick leave if you have 5 or more employees who work in NYC or unpaid sick
     leave if you have fewer than 5 employees.
   • 2 days of paid sick leave to domestic workers who have worked for you for more
     than 1 year. This leave is in addition to the 3 days of paid rest to which
     domestic workers are entitled under New York State Labor Law.

For more information for domestic workers and their employers, click here.
