New York Paid Leave for COVID-19

On March 18, 2020, New York State enacted emergency legislation that provides certain paid family leave and sets forth other rules related to employees who have been quarantined as a result of COVID-19.

Employers in New York with 10 or fewer employees and a net income of less than $1 million must provide job protection for quarantined employees and access to paid family leave and disability benefits through the paid family leave and disability insurance policies that they maintain.

Employers in New York with 11 to 99 employees and those with 10 or fewer employees and a net income greater than $1 million must provide quarantined employees with at least 5 days of paid sick leave, and employers with 100 or more employees must provide quarantined employees with at least 14 days of paid sick leave. 

After exhausting paid sick leave from an employer, if applicable, quarantined employees may obtain paid family leave benefits from the New York Paid Family Leave insurance coverage maintained by the employer.
