Paid Safe and Sick Leave Law: Notice of Employee Rights

Paid Safe and Sick Leave: Notice of Employee Rights

Under New York City's Earned Safe and Sick Time Act (Paid Safe and Sick Leave Law), certain employees have a right to safe and sick leave. Employers must provide the written notice of safe and sick leave rights to employees when they begin employment or when their rights change. You have a right to be given the notice in English and, if available on this DCWP webpage, your primary language. Employers must also post the notice in the workplace in an area that is visible and accessible to employees.

Note: Under the New Amendments effective September 30, 2020, the following employers must provide an updated notice of rights to employees by January 1, 2021:
  • Employers with 100 or more employees;
  • Employers of domestic workers.
