NYC Releases Workers’ Bill Of Rights: Your Labor Rights Guide

Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) Commissioner Vilda Vera Mayuga today released the City’s newly expanded, landmark Workers’ Bill of Rights.

A multilingual and comprehensive guide to rights in the workplace in New York City, which was created in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) and the New York City Commission on Human Rights (CCHR). This new version of the Workers’ Bill of Rights summarizes additional city laws, and now also includes state and federal laws that protect workers and job applicants in New York City, regardless of immigration status.

“Ensuring that all New Yorkers, especially immigrants who come here in search of new opportunities, are aware of their rights is essential to maintaining an inclusive workforce,” said Deputy Mayor for Housing, Economic Development, and Workforce Maria Torres-Springer. “Thank you to DCWP, MOIA, and CCHR for collaborating on the newly expanded Workers’ Bill of Rights and promoting crucial workplace protections.”
