New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Protection Releases New Notice for Employers

New York City’s Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) has created a new document for employer notice and posting requirements. The document itself is one page and provides a QR code that employees can scan to learn more information about a variety of topics such as the Worker’s Bill of Rights, Paid Safe and Sick Leave, and other city regulations. The QR code sends the employee to the DCWP website, so all information is kept up to date by the DCWP itself.


Employers are required to post the QR code in a conspicuous spot frequented by employees and provide a copy to both new employees (on hire) and current employees. It is currently unknown if DCWP desires to have this replace other individual notice and posting requirements, so employers should continue to provide all documents required of them by state or city law, even if they would overlap with passages provided by the QR code.


These new requirements go into effect on July 1, 2024. You can find the QR code linking to all pertinent information HERE.
