NY Paid Family Leave
Student employees may be eligible for paid family leave under the New York Paid Family Leave Law. For more information, please see the University's New York Paid Family Leave Policy and Procedure.
When classes are in session students may work up to 20 hours per week. When classes are not in session (i.e. Winter/Spring/Summer Break) students may work up to 35 hours per week, which is the standard NYU full-time work week. Students may hold multiple positions on campus, but may not exceed the maximum hours allowed per week.
Student employees may be eligible for paid sick leave. For graduate student employees covered under the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with Local 2110, please see Article XII of the CBA for more information. For all other student employees, please see the University's Sick and Safe Leave Policy and Procedure - New York City for more information.
New York Labor Law § 162 requires that employees working in New York receive unpaid meal periods that meet the minimum standards set forth in the chart below:
|Six hour shift extending over the “noonday meal period” of 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.||At least a 30 minute meal period between 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.|
|Shift beginning before 11:00 a.m. and ending after 7:00 p.m||At least an additional 20 minute meal period between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.|
|Six hour shift between 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.||At least a 45 minute meal period at a time midway between the beginning and end of the shift|
*During the meal period the employee must be completely relieved from duty for the purpose of eating a meal. It is not necessary that the employee leave the premises if he or she is otherwise completely freed from duties during the meal period. The employee is not considered “relieved from duty” if he or she is required to perform any duties, whether active or inactive, while eating.
