NYC Small Business Services
Division of Labor Services

The Division of Labor Services (DLS) also known as the Labor Services Unit, ensures that jobs created by New York City contracts, Industrial and Commercial Incentive Program (ICIP) and the Industrial and Commercial Abatement Program (ICAP) are available to all qualified individuals regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or citizenship status.  DLS helps contractors implement fair employment policies and practices, and assists them in their efforts to increase the representation of minorities and women in their workforce.

Program Overview
DLS enforces Executive Order No. 50, which requires City contractors comply with federal, state, and local equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws and regulations.  Prior to the award of a City contract or ICIP/ICAP benefit, a contractor must submit an Employment Report containing information on their employment policies and practices and workforce composition.  DLS will analyze the report to determine if the contractor maintains nondiscriminatory hiring and employment practices. The following contractors must submit an Employment Report to DLS.
