As a bonus to Bond’s August 24 Back to Business webinar, Bond attorneys Caitlin A. Anderson (governmental relations) and Lawrence J. Finnell (employee benefits) each recorded a short video about topics of interest to employers in New York State.

In her video, Caiti reviews the priorities New York’s new Gov. Kathy Hochul highlighted in her first public remarks since being sworn in as the state’s top administrator. Tune in to find out what the new governor had to say about masks and vaccine mandates in schools, COVID-19 rent relief and promoting transparency and ethics in state government. 

In his video, Larry talks about what we know so far about New York City’s new Retirement Security for All Act and requirements for certain private sector employers regarding payroll deduction programs for individual retirement accounts.

The full presentation covered the following topics:

  • NYC Mandatory Vaccination Requirements
  • NYC (& NYS?) Mandatory Retirement Program(s)
  • Update from Albany
