The Proskauer Brief: Hot Topics in Labor & Employment Law

Episode 7: Recent Amendments to the New York Earned Sick Time Act

December 14, 2017

In this episode of The Proskauer Brief, partner Harris Mufson and associate Laura Fant discuss recent amendments to the New York Earned Sick Time Act, which provides for paid sick days for eligible employees working in New York City. We will discuss how the recent changes will now both expand the covered reasons for leave under the law, and also expand the family members that employees can take leave to care for. In addition, we will highlight several other cities and states outside of New York that have adopted or are in the process of adopting similar laws.
