Sick leave is an important benefit for both employer and employee. Without it, employees go to work sick (nearly 50% according to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation study).
A separate study by the National Foundation for Infection Diseases found that 30% of workers reported that they contracted the flu from a colleague. NYC rules require sick leave and proof of compliance.
Use this NYC Sick Leave Timekeeping Compliance Checklist as an aid to see if you have any obvious timekeeping issues related to sick time management.
We also recommend that you consult legal, accounting, payroll and HR experts to ensure you are doing all you can to protect yourself, your company and your employees.
