New York Employers Must Provide Employees With Up to 3 Hours of Paid Time Off to Vote

Effective immediately, the New York Election Law has been revised to allow all employees to request up to three hours of paid time off to vote for any election, regardless of their work schedule.  Employees must notify their employers of their need for time off to vote at least two working days before the election.  The employer may designate the requested time off to vote be taken at the beginning or end of the shift.
