New York City’s Labor Laws

New York City has labor laws that mean your employer has to provide safe working conditions for all construction workers (Section 200). 

The Scaffolding Law (Section 240) requires that the sites provide protection to those workers who are at risk of falling or who are exposed to gravity-related risks (Falling objects).

 

Those who work on elevated platforms are protected from poorly implemented sites (Section 241). 

When your employer or a contractor does not comply with any or all of the labor laws, they could be held accountable. This means they might have to pay you compensation.
