New York: NYC Workers' Bill of Rights (7/1/24)

In Dec. 3, the New York City Council passed a bill requiring the Department of Consumer and Worker Production (DCWP), in coordination with the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA), the New York City Commission on Human Rights, and community and labor organizations selected by the commissioner of DCWP, to publish a workers' bill of rights on the city's website.  The bill was returned unsigned by the mayor without a veto, which means the bill will become law.
