The Earned Safe and Sick Time Act allows employees to use safe and sick leave for the care and treatment of themselves or a family member and to seek assistance or take other safety measures if the employee or a family member may be the victim of any act or threat of domestic violence or unwanted sexual contact, stalking, or human trafficking.
The New York Paid Safe and Sick Leave poster describes:
- the right to safe and sick time,
- the accrual rate and use of safe and sick time,
- protection from retaliation for requesting time off, and
- the right to file a complaint for requesting time off.
All New York City employers must provide employees with written notice of the employees’ right to safe and sick leave. Employers are encouraged to display the poster in the workplace.
