There may be much happening now in DC, but we must stay on top of the changes that are regularly taking effect at the state and local level – and ensuring that we are in compliance with the dictates. A good case in point is New York City, where “fair workweek laws” became effective just a few weeks ago on November 26. The fair workweek requirements on employers are expansive, covering a broad array of retail and fast food establishments, and costly for those employers not in compliance. We advised you last week that the nation’s most generous Paid Leave law will take effect in New York State on January 1 and referred our subscribers to a detailed state brochure to help clarify its requirements. In a similar vein, we believe this detailed article on the New York City Fair Workweek Laws can be beneficial as well.
