New York amends time off to vote law

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

Effective as of April 12, 2019, employees who are registered voters may, without loss of pay for up to three hours, take time off from work in order to vote at any election. The employee shall be allowed time off for voting only at the beginning or end of his or her working shift, as the employer may designate, unless otherwise mutually agreed. If the employee requires time off to vote, the employee must notify his or her employer not less than two working days before the day of the election that he or she requires such time off. Not less than 10 working days before every election, the employer must post conspicuously in the workplace where it can be seen as employees come or go to their place of work, a notice setting forth the provisions of this law. Such notice must be kept posted until the close of the polls on election day.
