Quick New York City Council Employment Law Legislative Update

Tomorrow, the NYC Council is likely to override Mayor Bloomberg's veto on the Earned Sick Time Act.  As described here, the Act, which requires employers to provide paid sick time, will go into effect next April if certain economic conditions persist (which we assume, at this point, they will).  The Council’s Committee on Civil Rights also tabled a bill today that would have, among other things, required employers to provide reasonable accommodations to employee’s because of pregnancy, childbirth and related conditions.
