On December 30, 2022, New York Governor signed into law Labor Law Section 240-i, establishing a registration system for contractors and subcontractors engaged in public work and covered private projects in New York. This law will require contractors to register with the New York State Department of Labor (the “Department of Labor”) every two years, by submitting various disclosures about their businesses, in order to ensure that contractors do not have previous labor law violations, and will abide by New York labor laws and regulations, including prevailing wage requirements.
