In April 2019, New York State announced changes to its "Time Off to Vote" posting, which is required by all employers. However, the new posting does not have to go up year round. Rather, employers must hang this document in a conspicuous location 10 days before - and until the end of - Election Day.
The biggest change on the "Time Off to Vote" posting is the requirement that businesses provide 3 hours, without loss of pay, for employees who are registered to vote. The old requirement provided 2 hours instead of 3.
This notice also requires that employees do not randomly leave during Election Day. They are required to notify their employer no less than 2 days before the day of the election if they plan to take time off to vote.
New NY State posters will include this notice, even though the posting may be ordered more than 10 days in advance of Election Day. It is our mission to make sure employers are never out of compliance.
