NYU punitive new sick policy
In December 2020, NYU revised an attendance policy that puts employees at risk of unfair termination. Under the new policy if an employee leaves work early for an unscheduled reason, the partial day absence counts towards the occurrence guidelines.
We, the undersigned, stand united for a fair attendance policy that allows us to care for ourselves and our families in times of need without having to risk our jobs. As NYU staff/ 1199 union members, we are committed to provide high-quality, compassionate, skilled patient care in a safe and healing environment, we demand a meeting to discuss this policy, and a voice in future policy decisions.
