On April 3, 2020, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the 2021 New York State budget which includes a new statewide paid sick leave requirement. The new leave provisions will require New York employers of all sizes to provide a certain amount of paid or unpaid sick leave to be used for certain medical and employee safety-related reasons.
The paid sick leave requirements will take effect – and covered employees will be entitled to begin accruing leave time – on September 30, 2020, however, employees may be restricted from utilizing accrued sick leave until January 1, 2021. Please join us as we discusses the new law and the affect it will have on your company.
