I just read an article regarding a new law (Bill 690-A) that was enacted in New York to help officials enforce employment laws. Employers are now faced with the possibility of having government officials poking around their hiring practices disguised as job applicants. The city’s Human Rights Commission will basically have two “testers” apply for, or inquire about, the same position in a company. While their qualifications will be similar, there will be a difference in the two applicants as one will have a characteristic protected by the city’s labor laws.
