Description :
On January 19, 2018, the New York City Council passed a law, effective October 15, 2018, that amends the New York City Human Rights Law, and requires employers, housing providers, and places of public accommodation to engage in “cooperative dialogue” with individuals with disabilities and other protected categories (i.e. religion, pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition, and victims of domestic abuse, sex offenses, and stalking).  The City Council is hopeful that the amendment will help eliminate bias against protected individuals. Come join us on November 13, 2018, as we welcome the Commissioner of the New York City Commission on Human Rights, Carmelyn P. Malalis, as well as other senior attorneys from the Commission, to discuss the new law, guidance issued by the Commission in June 2018, and implications for protected individuals, covered entities, and the public at large.
