SUBJECT:

Mandating Sick Time Use 

 

DATE:

This bill would dictate, for private sector employers of fifty or more employees who extend paid sick days, sick time or sick leave to their employees, the situations and circumstances under which employees would be entitled to use sick time under these employer sick day, sick time or sick leave programs. The Business Council opposes enactment of this bill.

For these reasons, The Business Council opposes this legislation and strongly urges that it not be enacted by the New York State Legislature.
