    In March 2021, former Governor Cuomo signed legislation providing up to four hours of paid leave for New York employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, (codified as New York Labor Law Section 196-C). New York employers should be aware that Section 196-C was recently extended to remain in effect through December 31, 2023. Accordingly, all New York employers should review their COVID vaccination leave policies to ensure that they apply through the new expiration date. Furthermore, New York employers should advise their managers and HR professionals of their New York employees' continued right to this paid leave.

    This time two weeks ago, the five boroughs of NYC were among 667 U.S. counties deemed high-risk for community COVID spread by the CDC. This week, they're five of 1,353.

    The number of U.S. counties meeting the CDC's high-risk threshold for COVID spread soared another 18% in the last week and is up a stunning 102% over the last two, marking a four-fold increase in that top threat category in roughly the last month as the so-called "worst version" of omicron yet strengthens its footing in America and the tri-state area.

    Washington now prohibits nondisclosure and nondisparagement agreements between employers and employees relating to certain illegal conduct. The Silenced No More Act was signed into law this spring and makes void and unenforceable any provision in an agreement with a current, former, or prospective employee or independent contractor that bars the employee or contractor from “disclos[ing] or discuss[ing] conduct, or the existence of a settlement involving conduct, that the employee reasonably believed under Washington state, federal, or common law to be illegal discrimination, illegal harassment, illegal retaliation, a wage and hour violation, or sexual assault, or that is recognized as against a clear mandate of public policy,” where the conduct occurred “at the workplace, at work-related events coordinated by or through the employer, between employees, or between an employer and employee, whether on or off the employment premises.” The Act does allow an agreement to limit the disclosure of the amount of a settlement.

    It is a violation of the Act by simply requesting or requiring an employee to enter into a covered nondisclosure or nondisparagement agreement, even prior to enforcement. Violation of the Act includes payment of actual damages or $10,000 whichever is more as well as reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.

    The Act is retroactive and invalidates any covered nondisclosure or nondisparagement agreement that were entered into at the outset of employment or during employment. However, any such agreement in the settlement of a prior legal claim remains enforceable but will not be permitted in the future.

    Employers will need to understand their new reporting and notification obligations under the law and be aware of the rebuttable presumption for workers’ compensation coverage.

    Inadequate regulations make it hard for patients to tell if they are getting a good doctor or a quack.

    "The alarming number of problems with Brazilian butt lifts is largely the result of lacking regulations. While plastic and cosmetic surgery may sound synonymous, they are not. Across the US, a couple of months of training earns doctors the right to call themselves a cosmetic surgeon. On the other hand, a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery requires at least six years of specialized training."

    In New York State, the shortage is at an “all-time high,” said Matthew Allen, a registered nurse at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City and a board member of the New York State Nurses Association. “It’s just historic, more than it’s ever been before,” Mr. Allen said, noting that as of last week, Mount Sinai’s hospital network alone had 771 unfilled registered nurse and nurse practitioner positions.

    The FDA last week announced that it had accepted the FACE-Q as a qualified Medical Device Development Tool (MDDT) – a decision that not only provides the agency with patient perspective when it comes to evaluating new aesthetic treatments, but also national recognition for an idea that came into being thanks to The PSF's grant funding.

    It’s a HIPAA violation that occurs every day but seldom makes the headlines. It has the potential to destroy an organization’s reputation, but it comes from within.

    Medical record snooping by employees may seem like a victimless offense, but the costs and consequences of EHR snooping are real.

The New York State Society of Plastic Surgeons, Inc (NYSSPS) was founded in 2008 on the guiding principle that New York’s plastic surgeons need an entity focused directly on representing its member's interests at the state / federal legislative and regulatory levels.
