NYS Business Council Provides Info on Paid Sick Leave

There's a lot of confusion over paid sick leave requirements passed at both the state and federal lev

els in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The Business Council of New York State has a very informative - and comprehensive - page on its site dedicated to this issue, that notes the following:

"New York law requires that, in the event of federal action on the coronavirus, employers apply the plan most generous to employees. In most cases, New York State’s new emergency paid sick leave will be more generous for employees subject to quarantine or isolation by a public health official or have a minor child quarantined as described below."

"In that case, employers should provide benefits provided by that law.  In the case of an employee requiring leave to care for a child whose school has closed due to the coronavirus, or other applicable situations, the Federal law would be most generous and would be in effect."
