NYC Earned Sick Time Act: Free Legal Help and Advice!

Do you need to take sick time at work or expect to take sick time in the future? A new law in New York City can help!

Workers covered by the NYC Earned Sick Time Act now have the right to:

  • Earn up to 40 hours of sick time per year
  • Use sick time to care for themselves or a family member
  • Get paid for their time off, in many workplaces
  • Be protected against retaliation for requesting or using sick time 

Do you have questions about whether you’re covered? Are you confused about how the law works or applies to you? Are you having problems at work related to sick time or the need to care for yourself or a family member?

We can help! Call our FREE and confidential legal hotline to speak with an attorney about your questions: 212-430-5982

Use our Earned Sick Time Advisor to find out whether you qualify, calculate how many hours you have accrued, and find out more about the law.

A Better Balance is a not-for-profit legal services organization that provides free legal representation and assistance to help New York City workers enforce their right to sick time.
