Earned Sick Leave Poster Is Now Available for Westchester Employers
As we recently reported, New York’s Westchester County has published on its website Employer and Employee FAQs, along with a Notice of Rights to Employees, concerning the county’s Earned Sick Leave Law, which became effective on April 10, 2019. The county has now issued the required poster. Covered employers can download the poster and display it in a conspicuous location at their office or facility.
Notably, the poster only references the obligation of employers with five or more employees to provide paid sick time; it is silent with respect to the mandate that employers with fewer than five employees provide unpaid sick leave. However, the county’s Human Rights Commission advises that all covered employers must display the poster.
