  • 1.  New York State - Sick Leave Law

    Posted 09-02-2020 10:32
    Has any New York staffing company prepared for this?? Does this law include temporary workers?  I am reading that it does include temporary and seasonal.  This could be very costly and a tracking nightmare.  Here is a link to the article that came out yesterday :

    https://linkprotect.cudasvc.com/url?a=https%3a%2f%2fwww.syracuse.com%2fbusiness%2f2020%2f09%2fnew-ny-law-requires-employers-to-give-sick-leave-to-all-workers-heres-what-you-need-to-know.html&c=E,1,rljh6sJ9iCRvDXrZ-nul3k-ijC_M8sJZ8LytzQ8F5Kyoy6s0Fi3uRRXJIP231ZgS0UzM7Ox6lprXEnywd07DvnuK_W0LN-vHKEYHx6F_ayS8NBP1CYmOqRVa&typo=1

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Voni:

    The paid sick leave requirement was included in the Governor's budget that was signed into law in April. It applies to all employers, except those with 4 or less employees in a calendar year and a net income of $1 million or less in the previous tax year only have to provide unpaid leave. 

    There is no exemption for staffing firms or for assigned employees.  All employees are eligible for the benefit. 

    Not sure how firms have gone about preparing to implement this, maybe some folks with operations in NY would be willing to weigh in.

    Thanks
    Toby

    Thank you Toby!!! It would certainly appreciate any input on how other Non-New York City staffing companies have prepared for this.  New York City has been doing this for a while.  Are you billing the client for these hours or are you absorbing the cost???
