New York City Paid Safe and Sick Leave Overview

September 17, 2021

The New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) partnered with the Greater New York Chamber to share information on the New York City Paid Safe and Sick Leave Law and New York State Emergency COVID-19 Paid Sick Leave Law. Workers who have COVID-19 or were in contact with someone with COVID-19 can get sick leave (time off) regardless of immigration status. State and local laws let workers take time off to care for themselves or a family member. Employers cannot mistreat or punish workers for using or asking for sick leave.
