NYC Paid Sick Leave (NYCPSL)

In April of 2014, NYC passed an Earned Sick Time Act, requiring employers of employees working in NYC to provide paid sick leave for employees.  Most of Eden II’s NYC employees have PTO accruals far beyond the minimal requirements of this law, and will continue to accrue PTO in accordance with the policy provision described previously (no additional allocation of time relating to this new law will occur, as current policies far exceed requirements).

However, employees working in Eden II sites in NYC who are hourly/part time (and not eligible for participation in PTO accruals) will accrue 1 hour of sick leave for every 30 hours worked, up to a maximum of 40 hours of sick leave per year.

NYCPSL is available ONLY for employee or family member illness/medical care, or when a public health emergency necessitates closure of Eden II or a child care provider/school of a child in the employee’s care.  Part time/hourly NYC requesting paid sick leave should request such time as far in advance as is practical (in accordance with general standards of our Time Away From Work policy). Paid sick leave will be paid at the employee’s home department rate.

Should an employee eligible for NYCPSL not use all accrued hours in a given year, up to 40 hours of paid sick leave may be carried over to the next year. Employees who are eligible for NYCPSL begin accruing PSL upon starting work, but cannot use accrued time until 90 days after hire. No payout of PSL occurs upon departure from the agency.  Eden II may require documentation from a licensed health care provider if NYCPSL eligible employees use more than 3 consecutive work days as sick leave.
