Law360 Quotes Partner Mark A. Konkel On NYC Paid Sick Leave
March 20, 2014

Partner Mark A. Konkel was quoted in the Law360 article “NYC Law Shows Paid Sick Leave Push Picking Up Steam.” The article addresses a new bill signed by Mayor Bill de Blasio, expanding paid sick leave obligations for employers in New York City, as the law continues a surge in cities and states requiring paid sick time for workers. Mr. Konkel notes that, “clearly you are seeing a trend, and it's gaining steam…it's inevitable that more jurisdictions will adopt paid sick time rules.” Mr. Konkel predicts that “large urban centers with a middle - to lower-class socioeconomic profile and a sizable contingent of low-wage workers would be particularly fertile ground for such initiatives.”
