Required Notice for Housing Providers
On March 25, 2021, Chapter 82 of the Laws of 2021 was signed into law. 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
Recent legislation amends the Human Rights Law and permits greater flexibility for people filing discrimination complaints with the Division of Human Rights, and strengthens provisions of the Human Rights Law that prohibit housing discrimination.
