Reminder: New York’s HERO Act Requires Employers to Take Action on Airborne Infectious Disease Prevention Plans

In June, New York Gov. Cuomo signed into law S 6768, amending certain provisions of the New York Health and Essential Rights Act (the “HERO Act”). The HERO Act requires most New York staffing firms and other employers to create airborne infectious disease prevention plans. The HERO Act also requires staffing firms and other employers with at least 10 employees to permit their employees to establish joint labor-management workplace safety committees.

This issue paper from the New York Staffing Association, an ASA-affiliated chapter, addresses the HERO Act’s requirements and identifies certain open questions with respect to employers’ obligations.
