Westchester County has released a poster for the Westchester County Earned Sick Leave Law (“WCESLL”). By July 10, 2019, all employers covered by the law must post the poster in English, Spanish and any other language deemed appropriate by the County of Westchester, in a conspicuous location. To date, Westchester County has only released the poster in English.
Employers should have already started providing eligible new hires with a copy of the law and written notice, which is intended to explain how the law applies to them. Employers have until July 10, 2019 to provide a copy of the law and written notice to eligible current employees. Westchester County recently published a revised model notice.
