Required Notice for Housing Providers
On March 25, 2021, Governor Cuomo signed Chapter 82 of the Laws of 2021. This statute requires the Division of Human Rights to promulgate regulations requiring housing providers “to provide notice to all tenants and prospective tenants … of their rights to request reasonable modifications and accommodations” for persons with disabilities, and repeals Chapter 311 of the Laws of 2020.
Recent Changes to the Human Rights Law
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has recently signed legislation amending the Human Rights Law and permitting greater flexibility for people filing discrimination complaints with the Division of Human Rights, and strengthening provisions of the Human Rights Law that prohibit housing discrimination.
