Columbia University complies with Section 196-c of the New York State Labor Law by providing its employees paid leave for a sufficient period of time, not to exceed four hours, per each COVID-19 vaccine injection. For the two-dose vaccines, the leave shall not exceed eight hours of paid time off. The leave shall be at the employee’s regular rate of pay and shall not be charged against any other leave, including sick leave. Employees who have their injection administered during non-work hours will not receive paid time off. Employees should track the time off using their normal method of tracking time out of the office.
