Changes to New York City’s Paid Sick and Safe Leave Law (NYCSL) took effect on September 30, 2020.
On September 23, 2020, the New York City Council enacted Int. No 2032-A, and Mayor Bill de Blasio signed the bill on September 28, 2020.
Most of the modifications comport the NYCSL with New York State’s Sick Leave Law (NYSSL), which also became effective on September 30, 2020. See our article New York State’s New Paid Sick Leave Law Goes Into Effect September 30, 2020. However, the amendments to the NYCSL also impose additional requirements on New York City employers.
