The New York City Commission on Human Rights (the “Commission”) published today a Notice of Public Hearing and Opportunity to Comment on its proposal to amend its rules to establish certain definitions and procedures in connection with the Fair Chance Act.  (See our prior blog posts on the Fair Chance Act here, here and here.)  The Commission will hold a Public Hearing on the proposed rules on March 21, 2016 at 1:00 PM at 125 Worth Street in the 2nd Floor Auditorium.  Written comments on the proposed rules must be submitted by March 21, 2016.

The proposed rules will be published officially on February 17, 2016, but the text was included on the notice.  Proskauer’s review is ongoing but an initial review indicates that the proposed rules largely track the enforcement guidance previously promulgated by the Commission.  Additional detail will be included a follow-up blog post.
