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?  


Andrew W. Singer, Esq. and Jason B. Klimpl, Esq. of Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP are intimately familiar with the New York City Earned Sick Time Act, having themselves contributed to the final version of the legislation. In this course, Andrew and Jason walk you through the legislation’s key requirements and how to enact compliant and business-savvy policies.  


Learning Objectives:

I.    Help clients develop policies and procedures compliant with the New York City Earned Sick Time Act and its implementing regulations

II.   Achieve an expedited handling of the HR manager’s inquiries regarding sick leave policies

III.  Avoid undue expense and obtain quick resolutions

IV.  Represent businesses and companies in implementing sound, practical and lawful leave policies
