New York City Council Hearing: "How to Strengthen Workers Rights Across the City Workforce"

Wed, Feb 23, 2022 at 01:00 PM

Wednesday, February 23, 1PM: Despite public support for policies that promote good jobs, the COVID-19 pandemic has repeatedly underscored how fair wages, health insurance, paid family and medical leave, and safe working conditions are still far from guaranteed—even for workers deemed essential by the City's economy. This hearing of the Civil Service & Labor Committee will examine how the City can take preventative measures including, but not limited not to: enhancing worker protection requirements in City contracts, effective policy mechanisms to combat worker mistreatment, and stronger enforcement of workplace standards.
