NYSDOL Issues Paid Sick Leave Guidance

At long last the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) has issued guidance on the implementation of the New York State Paid Sick Leave Law.  The law took effect on September 30, 2020, but the benefit cannot be used by employees until January 1, 2021.  This is not the same as New York's COVID-19 Sick Leave Law, which is a completely different sick leave benefit limited to COVID-19 situations.  The much promised NYSDOL guidance had been delayed even though the new law was enacted back in April 2020 as part of the New York State Budget.  You can read the NYSDOL guidance on the New York State Paid Sick Leave Law here: New York State Paid Sick Leave Guidance.
