Advocacy Alert: NYC Prohibits Use of Credit Checks in Employment

Ryan Gleason - May 27, 2015

On May 6, 2015, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed into law a bill that, effective September 3, 2015, prohibits employers in the five boroughs from requesting or using consumer credit reports in any employment decision. This follows the trend of several other states and local legislatures that have outlawed the practice in recent years.
