Most employees who work in New York City are covered by the New York City Human Rights Law (“NYCHRL”) – one of the most liberal employment statutes in the nation. This means that employees in New York City are afforded more protection against workplace discrimination and harassment than those who work outside of the City.
At the same time, New York City has one of the highest immigrant populations in the country, and many of those immigrants own or operate businesses in the City. These immigrant-owned businesses are integral to the fabric of the city, and range from restaurants and corner stores to law firms and tech companies to factories and warehouses.
