New York City Earned Sick Time Update
Based on recently issued guidance provided by New York City regarding what must be in the policy, we have updated the New York City Earned Sick Time provisions in the New York Handbook Builder.
The New York City Earned Sick Time provision 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.
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.
