Carolyn Richmond was quoted in the Crain’s New York Business article “Paid Sick Days Kick In, with Fanfare.” While the full text can be found in the July 20, 2014, issue of Crain’s New York Business, a synopsis is noted below.

As of July 30, 2014, tens of thousands of workers will be able to take sick days accrued since the paid-sick-leave law took effect on April 1.

The legislation has created plenty of uncertainty for businesses struggling to figure out how to mesh the law with practical considerations. “It’s been a little bit crazy, to say the least,” said Richmond. “As we predicted, there’s been a lot of confusion.”
