IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • AUTHORIZED USES: Under New York City’s Earned Sick Time Act (Paid Sick Leave Law), you are permitted to use earned sick leave for absence from work due to (1) need for preventive medical care; (2) mental or physical illness, injury, or health condition; and (3) need for medical diagnosis, care, or treatment of a mental or physical illness, injury, or health condition for yourself or for a family member. Your employer may discipline you, including dismissal from employment, if you use earned sick leave for a purpose other than those authorized by the Paid Sick Leave Law.

 

  • ADVANCE NOTICE: If your need for sick leave is foreseeable, your employer can require up to seven (7) days reasonable advance notice, in writing, of your intention to use sick leave. Your employer’s requirement for advance notice must be provided in written sick leave policies.

 

  • MINIMUM INCREMENT: The Paid Sick Leave Law allows your employer to set a reasonable minimum increment for the use of sick leave, but this minimum cannot be more than four (4) hours per day unless otherwise permitted by state or federal law. Your employer’s minimum increment must be provided in written sick leave policies.

 

  • MEDICAL DOCUMENTATION: After you use more than three (3) consecutive workdays of sick leave, your employer may require a note signed by a licensed health care provider indicating the need for the amount of sick leave used. Your employer cannot ask you for the reason why you are using sick leave, except as required by other state or federal laws. Your employer’s requirements and procedures for submitting medical documentation must be provided in written sick leave policies.

 

  • FINDING A REPLACEMENT: The Paid Sick Leave Law prohibits your employer from requiring you to search for or find a replacement employee for the hours you are scheduled to work and plan to use sick leave.

 

  • RETALIATION PROHIBITED: The Paid Sick Leave Law prohibits your employer from taking negative actions against you for requesting sick leave, using sick leave, or attempting to exercise any other rights protected by the Paid Sick Leave Law. If you believe your employer has taken unlawful retaliatory action against you, you may file a complaint with the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs online at nyc.gov/consumers or by calling 311.
