If your business is located in New York and you employ more than 50 employees, you’ll want to make sure you’re compliant with a change to NY Labor Law section 201-H. The law became effective January 1, 2023.
If your business falls under this criteria, it’s required to display a poster about services available to veterans.
The poster can be found here and includes information on the following:
- contact info for the Department of Veterans’ Services and the Department’s programs;
- substance abuse and mental health treatment;
- education, workforce, and training resources;
- tax benefits;
- NYS veteran status non-driver ID cards and veteran license plates;
- eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits under State and/or federal law;
- legal services; and
- contact info for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Crisis Line.
Every employer in the State with more than 50 full-time employees must display this poster in a conspicuous place accessible to employees in the workplace.
Additionally, this poster falls under the set of workplace posters that must be made available digitally to employees as well as physically at the workplace. For more info on this topic, here is our blog post about electronic poster requirements.
