  • Recently, Mayor Bill de Blasio signed a bill (0261-2014) that amends the New York City Human Rights Law, making it an unlawful discriminatory practice for an employer to use an individual’s consumer credit history in making employment decisions. The bill, which was previously approved by the City Council 47-3, goes into effect on September 3, 2015.
