WARN: General Inquiries

NYS DOL Disclaimer

In order to provide consistent, meaningful, and comprehensive guidance and compliance assistance to the broadest number of employers and employees, the Department of Labor no longer issues opinions on a case-by-case basis.

Instead of individual responses to opinion requests, the Department will generally respond by providing references to statutes, regulations, interpretations, and cases without an analysis of the specific facts presented. Those general responses will be posted under the Frequently Asked Questions section of the Department’s Counsel's Office page.

If you need a specific response to an inquiry, we suggest that you consult with private counsel.
