  • Know the Law: Paid Sick Leave

    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. Employers with five or more employees who are hired to work more than 80 hours a calendar year in New York City must provide paid sick leave. Employers with less than five employees must provide unpaid sick leave. Workers protected by this law include undocumented workers (workers without legal immigration status) and domestic workers (nannies and housekeepers). Content Detail
