Paid Sick Leave Notice and FAQs

The Westchester County Human Rights Commission published a copy of the county’s Sick Leave Law, a Notice of Employee Rights, and Frequently Asked Questions.

Employers are required to provide employees with a copy of the Notice and the Law at the start of employment or by the law’s effective date of July 1, 2019.

According to JD Supra:

“Employers are required to give a copy of the Notice and the Law to employees at the commencement of employment or within 90 days of the effective date of the law (here, July 9, 2019), whichever is later”.

Employers must also “conspicuously display a copy of the Law and a County-issued poster in a place or places accessible to all employees, in each Westchester County workplace”.

Failure to comply may result in substantial penalties.
