  • Letter Grades- City to Announce Public Comment Period

    Today, City Council and Department of Health announced the long awaited public comment period on reforms to the Restaurant Letter Grade System.

    As you may recall, representatives of the NYC Hospitality Alliance participated in a press conference last summer to announce the reforms, which intend to reduce fines and provide more educational resources to help restaurants earn an A-Letter Grade. The Alliance will now submit comments on the proposed reforms and will keep you up-to-date along the way as the reforms are implemented over the coming months.

  • Employers Must Post Pregnancy Sign

    As a reminder, on October 2, 2013, then Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed into law an amendment to the New York City Human Rights Law ("CHRL") that was unanimously passed by the New York City Council. This law requires employers with at least four employees within the City of New York to provide reasonable accommodations to pregnant employees.

    Effective on January 30, 2014, New York City employers must provide “reasonable accommodations to pregnant women and those who suffer medical conditions related to pregnancy and childbirth.” Find out more about these accommodations & download the Pregnancy & Employment Rights poster ›
