New York City: Workplace Poster for Temporary Schedule Change Law Published

By Collazo, Florentino & Keil LLP

July 24, 2018

Effective July 18, 2018, New York City employers are required to grant, with limited exceptions, an employee’s request for a temporary change to the employee’s work schedule due to a personal event. You can find our full advisory on the new law here.  The NYC Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) recently published a notice of employee rights that employers must post in NYC workplaces where employees can easily see it. The notice, “You Have a Right to Temporary Changes to Your Work Schedule,” is available here. Employers must post this notice in English and in any language that is the primary language of at least 5 percent of the workers at a workplace, if the translation is available from the DCA. The DCA advises that the notice should be printed and scaled to fill an 11” x 17” paper.
