Paid Sick Leave and Expanded Family and Medical Leave

Beginning in January 2022, the NYS DOH made self-certification forms available for employees to use to evidence the order of isolation or quarantine required under the law. Employees may complete the appropriate affirmation to satisfy the law’s requirement that they have an order of isolation or quarantine, as applicable, from a duly authorized government authority.

The NYS DOL guidance also takes the position that employees may take up to three periods of leave under the law since the onset. However, for the second and third periods, eligibility must be evidenced by a positive COVID 19 test, and the employee must submit documentation from “a licensed medical provider or testing facility” confirming the positive result, unless the employer performed the test. As a result, under the current guidance, a positive at-home test would not be sufficient to establish eligibility for a second or third period of COVID-19 leave under the law.

Starting September 1, 2022, Scotia-Glenville Central School District will be requiring a positive PCR test from all employees requesting to utilize the New York State Covid-19 Sick Leave Pay.

The links below will bring you to the affirmation of isolation form you may use in conjunction with your results.
