New Paid Sick Leave Law in NYC

Posted on

Under New York City’s Earned Sick Time Act (Paid Sick Leave Law), certain employers must give their employees sick leave, which they can use for the care and treatment of themselves or a family member.

The law recognizes the following as family members: Child; Grandchild; Spouse; Domestic partner; Parent; Grandparent; Child or parent of an employee’s spouse or domestic partner; Sibling (including a half, adopted, or step sibling).

Your employer cannot retaliate against you for requesting or using sick leave. Retaliation includes any threat, discipline, discharge, demotion, suspension, or reduction in your hours, or any other adverse employment action against you for exercising or attempting to exercise any right guaranteed under the law.

Your employer can require documentation from a licensed health care provider if you use more than three consecutive workdays as sick leave. The Paid Sick Leave Law prohibits employers from requiring the health care provider to specify the medical reason for sick leave. Disclosure may be required by other laws.
