Cure Periods for Violations
The NYC Hospitality Alliance led the effort with the business community and government officials to pass legislation that provides businesses a cure period for certain violations. The specific violations that now allow for a cure period represent 25% of all the violations issued by seven city agencies: DOB, DCA, DOHMH, DOT, DEP, FDNY, DSNY. The cure period applies to 83 violations from all agencies. We estimate that the Cure Period reform will add up to more than $33 million a year in savings for small businesses in NYC.
