COVID-19: Sick Leave Notice – All Employees

To all Employment Solutions Employees,

By order of the Governor, anyone traveling to a state (after June 25th) with positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents, or higher than a 10% test positive rate, over a seven day rolling average, and which the commissioner of the department of health has designated as meeting these conditions is required to quarantine for 14 days. The Governor issued an Executive Order clarifying that employees who travel voluntarily to any of these states shall not be eligible for benefits under the New York State emergency paid sick leave law. Employees should be aware that voluntary travel to any of these states could result in loss of pay during the required quarantine.
