"New York"
The Fair Labor Standards Act and New York’s Minimum Wage Orders require employers to pay non-exempt employees overtime for all hours worked over 40 hours in a workweek.
On August 23, 2018, the New York Governor’s office released written guidance and other materials addressing new requirements under New York State law that are designed to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace.

In January 2018, the New York City Council amended the New York City Human Rights Law (“NYCHRL”) to address employers’ responses to employee requests for accommodations in connection with their disability, religion, pregnancy, or status as a victim of domestic violence. This amendment will take effect on October 15, 2018, and has significant implications for employers’ ability to assert certain defenses in any subsequent litigation.
