In Spring 2019, the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) launched of a public awareness campaign to educate New Yorkers about their workplace rights and to introduce DCWP—formerly the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA)—as NYC’s central resource for workers. The multilingual campaign highlights that DCWP fights for all workers in NYC regardless of their job or immigration status and encourages New Yorkers to visit nyc.gov/workers or call 311 for more information about workplace rights or to file a complaint, which can be filed anonymously. The campaign ads feature workers in four industries—fast food or retail, paid care, day labor, and freelance—where DCWP has seen higher rates of workplace rights violations and/or the Agency enforces municipal workplace laws. The ads are running in the city’s subway cars and stations, bus shelters, LinkNYC, as well as in print, on radio, online, and in neighborhood businesses. Read press release.
