NYC PAID SICK LEAVE LAW AND SNOW

This past summer, NYC enacted the Paid Sick Leave Law which allows covered employees who work over 80 hours a year to begin using accrued sick leave. The ratio is one hour of sick leave for every 30 hours worked, with a limit of 40 hours of sick leave per calendar year.

And how did yesterday's blizzard affect it?

"Important Snow Storm Information

Paid Sick Leave and Weather: Employers are not required to provide paid sick leave to employees who are late or absent as a result of the weather and employers are not required to provide sick leave if the employer is closed due to the weather."
