The New York State Domestic Workers Bill of Rights: Guidance for Employers of Domestic Workers


On November 29, 2010, the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights (DWBOR) law became effective, providing unprecedented rights for New York’s estimated 200,000 domestic workers. Among other things, the new law requires that domestic workers receive overtime pay, one day off per week or overtime pay for that day, and annual paid time off. This new law will affect most households using domestic employees.

Partner Joshua Zuckerberg, a member of Pryor Cashman’s Labor and Employment Group, and associate Amanda Stevens have written an informative Legal Update entitled The New York State Domestic Workers Bill of Rights: Guidance for Employers of Domestic Workers.
