Event Details

NYS Quarantine Leave: March 17, 2022 at 1:00 pm (30 minute presentation)BPS attorneys will provide an overview of the New York State COVID-19 Sick Leave Law (also known as Quarantine Leave), which requires an employer to provide job-protected paid leave to workers who are subject to a mandatory or precautionary order of quarantine or isolation for COVID-19. This presentation will explain the combinations of benefits available to employees based on the size of their employer, the employer’s obligations for notifying employees of available benefits, and the interplay between Quarantine Leave and other sick leave benefits already available to employees. There will be time to answer questions that you may have.
