Sick Leave Law in New York

Webinar (ET)

Genevieve M. Murphy-Bradacs, Senior Counsel, and Jillian de Chavez-Lau, Associate, will present "Sick Leave Law in New York," a webinar hosted by Lorman.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, New York employers have seen significant paid sick time legislation, and amendments to existing legislation, go into effect. As a result, employers are faced with a web of paid sick leave laws with different purposes, scopes of coverage, accrual rules, and other considerations that can be difficult to untangle.
