NYC Releases Updated Pregnancy Accommodation Notice and Fact Sheet


The New York City Human Rights Law (NYCHRL) requires employers in New York City, with four or more employees, to provide employees with reasonable accommodations relating to pregnancy and childbirth.  The NYCHRL also requires employers to provide employees with notice of their rights to pregnancy related accommodations at the time of hire and by posting a notice of such rights in the workplace.

 The New York City Commission on Human Rights, which enforces the NYCHRL, has published a new Fact Sheet and Notice concerning pregnancy related accommodations at work. The Notice should be provided to all new employees at the time of hire and posted in a conspicuous place in the workplace, such as a lunch or break room. The Fact Sheet provides both employers and employees with examples of reasonable accommodations.

If you have questions about your business's obligation to provide reasonable accommodations to its employees, please contact us at (201) 345-5412 or
