“Your Rights at Work” Required Workplace Poster by July 1, 2024

In an effort to protect workers’ rights in New York City, the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) has expanded the Workers’ Bill of Rights. You can click here for more details as to what the motivation was for this initiative: https://www.nyc.gov/site/dca/news/013-24/department-consumer-worker-protection-releases-workers-bill-rights–one-stop-shop-for and here to get an understanding of how the City is enforcing workers’ rights: https://www.nyc.gov/site/dca/workers/workersrights/know-your-worker-rights.page


This updated version the Workers’ Bill of Rights now includes not only additional city laws but also state and federal laws that safeguard workers and job applicants, regardless of immigration status. The expanded Workers’ Bill of Rights covers a range of protections, including, among other things, Paid Safe and Sick Leave, the Temporary Schedule Change Law, Fair Workweek Law. Employers in New York City are required to prominently display the “Your Rights at Work” poster and provide copies to each employee. The poster is now available online and must be posted by July 1, 2024. 

Several city agencies will conduct outreach to workers about their rights and employers about their responsibilities under the new law. This updated resource also offers information on rights enforced by other state and federal agencies, such as minimum wage and the right to organize. New Yorkers can access the poster online or through 311 and file complaints online or by contacting 311 if their rights are violated. Enforcement of the law will be complaint-based, with penalties for non-compliance.
