The NYC Human Rights Law, one of the most extensive antidiscrimination laws in the country, is enforced by the NYC Commission on Human Rights and protects New Yorkers against discrimination and harassment in employment, housing, and public accommodations. Every business employing people and/or selling goods and services in New York City has responsibilities under the Law both as an employer and as a provider of public accommodations, and must comply with those responsibilities to avoid breaking the law. Helping businesses comply with the NYC Human Rights Law is our priority.
If you are a business owner, we want to help you understand your responsibilities under the NYC Human Rights Law.
Check out our business brochure to help you stay in compliance with the law.
