By Council Members Ayala, Chin, Louis, Kallos, Eugene, Diaz, Vallone and Rose

 

A Local Law in relation to requiring the commission on human rights to create a poster on age discrimination and requiring city agencies to display the poster

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. The commission on human rights shall include as part of its regular outreach and education efforts informational resources on age discrimination. Such informational resources shall include a poster created by the commission that describes age discrimination, provides examples of prohibited conduct and explains how to file a complaint. Such poster shall also include information on additional resources on age discrimination. Such additional resources shall be made available on the commission’s website. 

§ 2. Every city agency shall conspicuously display the poster created by the commission on human rights on age discrimination in employee breakrooms or other common areas for employees. For purposes of this local law, the term “agency” has the same meaning as such term is defined in section 1150 of the New York city charter and shall include the offices of the borough presidents, the comptroller and the public advocate.

§ 3. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law.
