DCWP is in the process of updating and translating materials to reflect the below new amendments to NYC’s Paid Safe and Sick Leave Law.
Reminder: Employers with 5 to 99 employees in New York State must provide up to 40 hours of paid leave each calendar year. Employers with four or fewer employees in New York State and a net income of less than $1 million must allow employees to take up to 40 hours of unpaid leave. Please continue to monitor nyc.gov/workers.
If you are a covered employee, your employer must give you written Notice of your right to safe and sick leave. You have a right to the Notice in English and in your primary language if a translation is available on the DCWP website nyc.gov/workers. Keep a copy of the Notice you are given. Your employer must also post the Notice in the workplace in an area that is visible and accessible to employees. Visit Paid Safe and Sick Leave: Notice of Employee Rights webpage.
