New York City Publishes Workers’ Bill of Rights Notice

New York City recently enacted a law requiring businesses to provide a Workers’ Bill of Rights to employees. The city has now published the required employee notice. By July 1, 2024, employers must provide the notice of the Bill of Rights to each of their current employees. New hires must receive it on their first day of employment. Employers are also required to post the Bill of Rights at the worksite in a visible and accessible area and on any website or mobile application used to regularly communicate with employees.

Employers who fail to provide or post the required Bill of Rights will face a $500 penalty, although first-time violators will have an opportunity to rectify their mistake.
