New Laws and Regulations for the Legal Industry

As legal practice continues to evolve, the industry is constantly searching for new ways to serve clients. Law new refers to practices that may not have traditionally been part of the legal landscape, such as alternative service providers, entrepreneurship and leveraging technology. Law new is an idea that all firms should explore in order to maximize the benefits of this emerging area of legal service.

Local Laws

The New York City Council has passed a variety of new laws and regulations. Some of the laws were introduced and approved before 2022, while others were introduced and passed after 2022. These new laws include:

SS 206. Licensing of Third-Party Food Delivery Services.

This bill would require third-party food delivery services to obtain a license in order to conduct business in the City. It also would repeal the subchapter in the Administrative Code that contains existing laws regulating third-party food delivery services. The Department of Consumer and Worker Protection could deny, refuse to renew or suspend a license, or revoke it, if the department determines that a third-party food delivery service has committed two or more violations of this bill’s provisions.

SS 209. Access to Personal Information Collected through State Agency Websites.

This article would establish a process for users to access the personal information that is collected through a state agency website, and for the opportunity to request correction or amendment of that information. It also requires that a state agency provide users with notice of any collection of personal information from a website.

SS 302. Disclosure of Personal Information.

This legislation is modeled after the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act and would require a state to disclose to the credit bureaus any information that is obtained by a state agency in connection with the investigation of a crime or for other investigative purposes, or for employment purposes. It also would allow a state to disclose to employers the names and addresses of job applicants who have requested employment.

SS 303. Disclosure of Records of State Agency Investigations.

This proposal would amend the Freedom of Information Law to allow state agencies to release records of investigations of individuals, organizations and businesses, provided that those records are not used for the purpose of retaliation or discrimination.
