As an employer of people across the state we will abide by NYC’s Earned Safe and Sick Leave Act.
Please note, we have been given all Support Staff PTO that covered the previous NYC Sick Leave Act, and now this Earned Safe and Sick Leave Act at the rate of one hour for every 30 hours they work as the regulations state since 2014.
This notice will be included in the new hire paperwork moving forward and is being distributed via email to all stakeholders and employees.

Assistant Executive Director of Administrative Services
Effective immediately, the Accounts Payable department has revised and uploaded updated forms to the website. These forms replace previous, outdated ones. Going forward, please begin using the new, revised forms.
In addition, please note that we have added a mileage form for use by families with multiple participants who utilize multiple family-owned vehicles and allow all staff to drive those vehicles. The purpose of this form is to identify who is driving which participant in which vehicle at any one time.
You will find the following newly revised forms
Mileage 2018 for Multiple Vehicles
Mileage Sample 2018
Expense Sample 2018
Family Reimbursed Respite 2018
Respite Sample 2018
on the current ISS website at http://www.issny.org/forms/
If you received a self-addressed envelope with a contact verification form, please use for that purpose. Do not send any time sensitive documents with this mailing. Thank you.
Payday this week is going to be on Thursday 11/9/17 due to the Veteran’s Day banking holiday on Friday. Holidays also tend to slow the USPS mail so whenever possible, please mail your timesheets early.
Also, reminder: Only 24 hours of PTO will rollover into 2018. Check your UltiPro pay stub for your PTO balance. If you are taking time off please remember that PTO is paid time off; if you are working with another participant at the same time as the PTO times to make up hours you cannot receive “Paid Time Off” because you are not “off”, you are working. If you make up hours they must be at different times than the PTO hours. Also please remember when submitting your time sheet for PTO time that you must write the dates, times and hours you would normally work with the participant, mark it as non-billable, not face-to-face, and write PTO for the description/staff action.
With the holidays approaching please be sure to mail your time sheet on time or early if at all possible, to avoid any delays in pay. Please remember that we can only guarantee on time payment for time sheets mailed on time. Mailing them even one day late or after the post office closes can impact the timeline drastically during these holiday months.
Also, with the year coming to a close please review the following important W-2 information and notify us of any desired changes immediately:
- Social Security Card Name: Employee name in UltiPro reflects their name as it appears on their social security card.
- UltiPro Information: Personal information (name, address, and social security number) in the UltiPro portal.
- Tax Withholding: As reflected in their most recent paycheck.
OPWDD will be holding a Public hearing video conference at sites around the state to gather input for the Statewide Comprehensive Plan 2018-2022, on September 25th, from 3-7pm.
