A Better Balance was proud to be on hand at City Hall yesterday as Mayor de Blasio signed into law an expansion of New York City’s paid sick time law to cover domestic violence purposes and to expand the definition of family members for whom New York workers can take sick leave.

The New York City Council passed a landmark piece of legislation that will provide powerful new rights to 3.4 million workers by expanding the city’s sick time law. This marks not only an important step forward for New York City, but also an important victory for our national movement for inclusive workplace leave laws.
The extent to which the DOJ will act against transgender plaintiffs remains to be seen. What’s clear, however, is that the Department’s revised policy is a reflection of the Trump administration’s larger attempt to roll back rights and protections for LGBTQ individuals.
This report calls attention to some of the most pressing problems facing workers across the city today, with particular focus on issues affecting more vulnerable workers, including immigrant workers, undocumented workers, home care workers, and domestic workers.
We’re fighting across the country for workplace laws that reflect and protect the diversity of American families. This commitment is especially important in June, a month where we celebrate LGBTQ individuals and families across the country.
Happy Father’s Day to all the caring, hardworking dads out there! As you continue to support your families, ABB will be here supporting you every step of the way.
