January 17, 2014

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito are unveiling a plan that would expand the number of city businesses required to provide paid sick leave for their workers by tens of thousands. Under the proposal, set to be released in Brooklyn today, any company with five or more workers would be required to provide some form of paid sick leave. According to The New York Times, the new rules would bring New York more in line with other cities, which already have similar rules.
