New York City Council Likely to Vote This Week to Override Mayor Bloomberg's Veto of Law Prohibiting Discrimination Based on an Individual's Unemployment Status

Following up on our earlier posts (here and here), tomorrow, March 13, 2013, the New York City Council’s Committee on Civil Rights will determine whether to send the new unemployment discrimination law (No. 814-A) to the full New York City Council for a vote on whether to override Mayor Bloomberg’s veto of that law.  If it does, the full Council will vote on whether to override the veto that same day.  A spokesperson for Councilmember Leroy Comrie, one of the bill’s sponsors, stated that they are confident of an override, which needs 34 votes.  The law had previously passed by a 44-4 margin.  We will report back if and when a vote is held.
