New York City Earned Sick Time

The New York City Earned Sick Time provision, which took effect April 1, 2014, and is only applicable if the employer has five or more employees who are hired to work more than 80 hours in a calendar year in New York City, demonstrates the Company's compliance with this legal requirement imposed by New York City.

Covered employers must comply with this provision in regard to any employee who works more than 80 hours in a calendar year, whether on a full-time, part-time or temporary basis, within the geographic boundaries of New York City.

We provide this as a sample policy for employers that wish to include it in the employee handbook. NOTE that although employers must provide a city-issued model notice, there is no per se requirement to provide a separate policy.
