NYS Mandatory Paid Sick Leave Updates

Beginning September 30, 2020, employees in New York must accrue protected sick leave but employees are NOT entitled to use their accrued sick leave until January 1,
2021. Here is a summary based on the law in its current form. We expect additional guidance from the NY Commissioner of Labor as we approach the effective date.

Applicability:


All employers are required to provide protected sick leave, but whether itʼs paid and the amount of annual sick leave depend on the size and net income of the employer:
• 4 or fewer employees and net income of $1 million or less: 40 hours, unpaid.
• 4 or fewer employees and net income of more than $1 million: 40 hours, paid.
• 5–99 employees: 40 hours, paid.
• 100+ employees: 56 hours, paid.

Employer may choose any regular, consecutive twelve-month period as the benefit year, except that the number of employees is determined on a calendar year
(January 1 through December 31). The statute does not specifically allow employers to exclude employees who work outside New York from its calculation.


Accrual:
All employees, including part-time and temporary employees, who do not work in the state are required to accrue 1 hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked: accrual begins on September 30, 2020, or the employeeʼs first day of work, whichever is later.


Employees are entitled to carry over all their unused sick leave hours: however, employers may limit annual use to the caps outlined in the bullet points above.
Instead of an hourly accrual method, employers may choose to front-load their employeesʼ sick leave hours at the beginning of each year. If they do so, however, they may not reduce their sick leave allotment if the employee works less than expected.


Usage:
Yearly usage may be capped at 40 hours for employers with fewer than 100 employees and at 56 hours for employers with 100 or more employees. Other than the
usage start date of January 1, 2021, the law does not allow employers to impose a waiting period before an employee can use their accrued sick leave.
