Employee Earned Sick Time in Westchester

THE PEOPLE’S TOWN HALL-

EMPLOYEE EARNED SICK TIME IN WESTCHESTER NY

Does this sound familiar?  You’re in line at a coffee shop waiting for your order and the sever working behind the counter is coughing and wiping a runny nose and you think to yourself “Great, now I’m going to get sick, why doesn’t this person just stay home”.    Well, it’s likely, because they are one of the 36% of Westchester workers that don’t have employer paid sick leave.  

When so many workers in Westchester don’t have paid sick leave they: come to work sick, send their children to school sick, and ultimately increase the chances of getting us all sick.   In 2018, we can change that by supporting a new law proposed by the Westchester County Legislators that provides Employee Earned Sick Time for workers.   New York City has already passed such a law and has seen many benefits to workers, employers and the community.

You’re invited to take part in a People’s Town Hall to learn, discuss and comment on the benefits and challenges in passing: Employee Earned sick Time in Westchester NY.
