NYC Issues Revised Notice of Employee Rights for Safe Time
As of May 5, 2018, employers must provide employees working in New York City with up to 40 hours of sick and safe leave per year under the Earned Safe and Sick Time Act, as explained in a prior alert available here. On May 7, 2018, the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) issued a revised Notice of Employee Rights template in English. The revised notice must be distributed to new employees as of May 5, 2018, and to current employees prior to June 4, 2018. Employers must also provide each employee with a Notice of Employee Rights in the employee’s primary language, if such a translation is available on the DCA’s website; however, revised notices in languages other than English are not yet available on the website.
To discuss revising your sick leave policy in accordance with the new law, please contact your CSG attorney.
