Setting up a compliant NYC Sick Leave policy in Justworks
Employers, Employers with five or more employees who are hired to work more than 80 hours a calendar year in New York City must provide paid sick leave. The acceptable reasons for an employee to use sick leave for an absence from work can be found here.
Eligible employees are entitled to 40 hours of Paid Sick Leave annually, either on an accrual basis as prescribed by the NYC Dept. of Consumer Affairs or by “Upfront” granting [sic].
Justworks’ PTO tracker only supports “Upfront” granting for the administration of a compliant Paid Sick Leave policy under New York City law.
Carryover is not required, since you are satisfying the statute’s minimum annual accrual cap up front.
