NYC Sick Leave Rules Leave Hospitality Industry Uneasy

Jack Pulvirenti, CPA 06.18.2014 | eVisor


The New York State Restaurant Association is raising questions concerning NYC’s new paid sick leave rules which went into effect on 4.1.14.  Calling the rulemaking process rushed, the Association noted that the rules fail to address operational issues specific to the hospitality industry, including the four hour maximum shift rule.  It also noted that the law became effective before the rules were passed.

The absence of sick leave rules had made it difficult for businesses to finalize their human resources policies.  Under the new rules, businesses with fewer than 20 employees have a six month grace period  protecting them from being fined for unintended violations of the law.
