New York City has again expanded the scope of employees’ rights with two important new enactments that will affect employers’ operations in 2018 and beyond.

The Fair Workweek Law, which went into effect on November 26, 2017, imposes significant constraints on shift scheduling in the retail and fast food industries.  The City’s Office of Labor Policy and Standards has said it “will be going door-to-door to ensure that New Yorkers are aware of their rights and their obligations under these new laws.”

The Earned Sick and Safe Time Act will take effect on May 5, 2018.  Expanding the City’s current paid sick leave entitlement, the amendments notably allow paid leave to be used for “safe time” reasons and expand the ordinance’s definition of “family member.”   

Join us as we analyze the obligations and ambiguities of these new laws and share practical tips for compliance.
