You are an experienced general corporate attorney, handling a variety of business law matters, and are also frequently called upon to draft employee policies and procedures on behalf of companies. Then one afternoon, you receive a phone call from the HR manager of an old client company. She tells you she has heard media reports that the New York City Council has passed mandatory paid sick leave legislation, and she wants to know how and whether it will impact her company. The company also intends to update its employee handbook in the near future. Accordingly, the HR manager needs practical information and sound advice on the new sick leave law on an expedited basis. What do you do?
