New NYC Workers' Bill of Rights Requirement Effective July 1, 2024

New York City has issued a “Workers’ Bill of Rights” which contains information about certain prospective and current employee rights under federal, state and city laws. The “Workers’ Bill of Rights” is published on the New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Protection’s website.

In connection with the issuance of the Workers’ Bill of Rights, New York City employers are required to post the “Your Rights at Work” poster, which provides a QR code referring employees to the Workers’ Bill of Rights, on or before July 1, 2024. The poster must be posted at each New York City work location in a place that is accessible and visible to employees. New York City employers must also provide a copy of the poster to each current employee on or before July 1, 2024 and to new employees on or before their first day of work. New York City employers must also post the poster on any online platform that they use to regularly communicate with employees, such as an Intranet or mobile application.

Failure to post and distribute the poster on or before July 1, 2024 can result in a notice and opportunity to correct upon the first violation and, thereafter, a civil penalty of $500 for additional violations.
