The NYC Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP)—formerly the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA)—started with the passage of New York City's landmark Consumer Protection Law in 1969. Since then, our work has expanded to protect and enhance the lives of all players in the marketplace, including consumers, businesses, and workers.
