The Division of Immigrant Policies and Affairs (DIPA) ensures the services, programs and protections of the Department of Labor are available to all workers – including the large and growing group of people who work in or move to New York from another country.
Our mission is to support and protect immigrants where necessary, help integrate immigrants into the economic fabric of the state, and support businesses with compliance and other services.
Permitted facility owners/operators must follow applicable guidance and comply with NYS permit conditions and requirements.
The Department of Labor is often the first point of contact for immigrant, refugee, and limited English proficient workers or job seekers. We are also a point of contact for small businesses for information about the Labor Laws and being in compliance.
