Number of workers covered under New York City's Fair Workweek Law
|Industry||Total industry employment||Share in firms with 20+ employees||Nonsupervisory share of industry employment||Total covered workers|
Notes: New York City’s Fair Work Week Act went into effect on November 26, 2017.
New York City’s Fair Work Week Act went into effect on November 26, 2017. The total number of covered workers in each industry is calculated by multiplying the industry’s total employment in New York City by the nonsupervisory share of employment for employees in that industry. Because the legislation impacts all retail trade employees at firms with 20 or more employees, we do not adjust by the nonsupervisory share of employment for retail trade employees. In all cases, “share” refers to the share in the New York-Newark-Jersey City, NY-NJ-PA MSA (NY part). Calculations are made using unrounded numbers.
