New York City has amended its Earned Safe and Sick Time Act to align with New York state’s paid sick leave law, which was passed in April 2020. These changes went into effect September 30, 2020, and primarily involve new obligations for the city’s smallest and largest employers.
Some of these updates regarding how much leave must be provided include:
- Small businesses with four or fewer employees and an income less than $1 million must provide 40 hours of unpaid leave.
- Small businesses with four or fewer employees but an income of at least $1 million must provide 40 hours of paid leave.
- Most businesses with 99 or fewer employees must still provide 40 hours of paid sick leave.
- Large businesses of 100 or more employees must provide up to 56 hours of paid leave.
