Federal law and guidance on this subject should be reviewed together with this section.
- New York's employment retaliation laws are generally more expansive than the federal statutes. See Retaliation Under the New York State Human Rights Law.
- New York City has a local ordinance which also prohibits employment retaliation. See Retaliation Under New York State Human Rights Law.
- The New York State Human Rights Law (NYSHRL) and the New York City Human Rights Law (NYCHRL) permit an aggrieved employee to elect between instituting either an administrative or civil action. See Number of Employees and Procedural Timelines.
- New York also prohibits employers from retaliating against employees because those employees have made complaints about equal pay. See Equal Pay Law.
