A Better Balance
Victory in NYC!

Today, the New York City Council passed a law we championed expanding the protections of the Earned Sick Time Act, the landmark law we fought for and won in 2013. The new law will give 3.4 million workers new rights, called safe time, to time off when they or their families are facing domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking. It will also ensure that New York City workers can take the time they need to care for their chosen families, loved ones to whom they may not necessarily have a legal or biological relationship–a protection that is especially important for immigrant and LGBTQ families, veterans, and older adults. You can find out more on our blog.
At A Better Balance, we’ll keep fighting until all workers can be with their families in the face of illness or violence, no matter what those families look like.
