New York City is poised to require employers to provide their workers with sick days. The City Council, by a vote of 45-3, has passed legislation requiring New York City private-sector employers, outside of the manufacturing industry, to provide paid (or unpaid, for certain employers) sick time to employees. The measure approved by the Council on May 8, 2013, reflects a compromise between advocates of such legislation, opponents in the business community and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, whose delay in bringing the bill for a vote was used (and continues to be used) against her by other mayoral candidates.
