Councilman King Sponsors Workshop On Paid Sick Leave For Small Businesses

City Council Member Andy King is hosting “What Does NYC’s Paid Sick Leave Law Mean for Your Business?”on Wednesday, April 16, 6-8 p.m., at the Williamsbridge ECE Center, 680 East 219th St., Bronx.  The free workshop is for small businesses to learn about the NYC Paid Sick Leave law.

Featured speakers include representatives of the City Department of Consumer Affairs to help employers understand their responsibilities under the NYC’s Paid Sick Leave Law.

On April 1, New York took its place on the growing list of cities that have implemented mandatory paid sick leave laws. Under the new ordinance, New York City businesses with 20 or more employees must offer at least five paid sick days to employees, or be subjected to fines. Smaller businesses must provide five unpaid sick days.

Mayor Bill De Blasio commented on the historic legislation last month:

“From Day One of this administration, we’ve made it our mission to lift up working families and raise the wage and benefit floor for all New Yorkers. This law is the first of many steps we are taking to fundamentally address inequality in this city, and make this a city where everyone rises together. Today is truly a historic day that takes us one step closer toward that goal,” said the Mayor.

Business owners interested in attending the workshop should RSVP to the Office of Council Member King at (718) 684-5509.
