Earned Sick Time Act
On Wednesday February 26th, the New York City Council voted 46-to-5 to expand the Earned Sick Time Act that is scheduled to go into effect on April 1, 2014. Under the amended law, all businesses with at least five employees (or one domestic worker) must provide workers with five paid sick days a year. Previously, the law had limited the paid sick leave requirement to businesses with at least fifteen employees. The bill also expands the categories of family members whom employees are allowed to take time off to care for to include grandparents, grandchildren, and siblings. The law has also expanded to require that all employees not entitled to paid sick leave be given at least five unpaid sick days a year.
