NYC Workplace and Labor Law Update:
A Look At NYC’s Worker Protection Laws and its Impact on Workplace

April 26, 2022, 6 – 7:30 pm ET


NYC regulatory agencies are charged with administering and/or enforcing municipal workplace laws intended to protect workers across various industries. These laws apply to workers of different socio-economic groups, tackling matters such as pay equity, workplace safety and other worker rights and protection issues.  Our panel will address recent enforcement initiatives  and its impact on employers, employees and the workplace.
