Governor of New York State, Andrew Cuomo, has guaranteed workers job protection and financial compensation in the event they are subject to an order of mandatory or precautionary quarantine or isolation issued by their local board of health, the Department of Health, or the state of NY.
The majority of workers will receive financial compensation by using a variety of benefits. These are not available to employees who are able to continue work through remote access. Paid family leave can also be used to care for family members that suffer from serious health conditions.
