New York City Law Prohibiting Discrimination Based on an Individual's Unemployment Status Goes Into Effect on June 11, 2013

This is just a friendly reminder that New York City’s new law prohibiting discrimination based on an individual’s current unemployment status is set to become effective next week, June 11, 2013.  Employers: if you have not done so already, we strongly encourage you to take steps immediately to reduce your potential exposure once the law does go into effect.  Attorneys from Mintz Levin’s New York Labor, Employment & Benefits Practice are also standing by to provide assistance.  Our complete post regarding this new law is available here.
