The Details

Special Training! Overview of the Earned Paid Sick Time Act and the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (Community Service Society)

Join us tomorrow (Wednesday, March 26) to learn what these two new laws mean for working New Yorkers:

  • Paid Sick Days
  • Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

Get the information you need to spread the word that workers in New York City now have a legal right to sick time for themselves and to care for their family members and pregnant workers have rights to accommodations they need to stay on the job.

Speakers:

Sherry Leiwant, A Better Balance
Phoebe Taubman, A Better Balance
Nancy Rankin, Community Service Society

Learn the details of the Earned Sick Time Act and the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act from the experts who led efforts to secure these new labor standards for working New Yorkers. The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act went into effect in January and the Earned Paid Sick Time Act will go into effect on April 1, 2014.

This training will provide you with answers to questions about these new laws as well as resources for further help.
