NYS Governor Hochul Signs Bill Requiring Posting of Veterans' Benefits and Services

On November 10, 2022, NYS Governor Kathy Hochul signed eight pieces of legislation aimed at strengthening protections and support for veterans and their families, including Senate Bill S.1961B/Assembly Bill A3913B, which amends Labor Law § 201-h. Under the amendment, employers with more than 50 full-time equivalent employees will be required to display a poster containing information on veterans’ benefits and services once the law goes into effect on January 1, 2023.

The poster will include the following information regarding services available to veterans:

a.    Contact and website information for the division of veterans’       services and the department’s veterans’ program
b.    Substance abuse and mental health treatment
c.    Educational, workforce, and training resources
d.    Tax benefits
e.    New York State veteran drivers’ licenses and non-driver identification cards
f.    Eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits under state and/or federal law
g.    Legal services
h.    Contact information for the US Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Crisis Line

The poster must be displayed in a conspicuous area accessible to all employees in the workplace. The Department of Labor, in consultation with the Division of Veterans’ Services, is expected to develop a prototype poster. 

Employers required to display the poster under the amendment to Labor Law §201-h should monitor the Department of Labor’s website for the poster’s publication and be prepared to display the poster on January 1, 2023.

If you have any questions regarding the content of this alert, please contact Bob Heary, Labor & Employment Practice Area chair, at rheary@barclaydamon.com; Brienna Christiano, associate, at bchristiano@barclaydamon.com; or another member of the firm’s Labor & Employment Practice Area.
