Paid Safe and Sick Leave

DCWP launched a public awareness campaign to educate New Yorkers about their rights and protections under the recently expanded NYC Paid Safe and Sick Leave Law. The multilingual campaign encourages New Yorkers to use their leave for various reasons, such as when they or a loved one is sick or injured, have a medical checkup, or are struggling with COVID anxiety or depression. In addition to community marketing, the ads will be featured on the city’s bus shelters and LinkNYC kiosks, as well as in online and in neighborhood businesses, such as doctors’ offices and pharmacies. Read press release.

Under New York City’s Earned Safe and Sick Time Act (Paid Safe and Sick Leave Law), covered employees have the right to use safe and sick leave for the care and treatment of themselves or a family member and to seek legal and social services assistance or take other safety measures if the employee or a family member may be the victim of any act or threat of domestic violence or unwanted sexual contact, stalking, or human trafficking.
Employees: Know your rights.
Employers: Know your responsibilities.
