Public Notice | Mayor’s Office of Employment Development Taking Public Comment on Proposed Revisions to Local Hiring Rules and Regulations

The Mayor’s Office of Employment Development (MOED) is accepting public comment on proposed revisions to the existing regulations for the administration of the Local Hiring Law (LHL).

These revisions to the regulations:

  • clarify the practice of allowing different start and end dates for subcontractors for the purposes of requiring monthly employment reports;

  • resolve the issue of on-call contracts, basing their applicability under the local hiring law on the cumulative total of tasks under the on-call contract rather than the upset limit;

  • correct some of the language adjusting for the fact that contract increases and on-call contracts can become subject to the local hiring law after the initial award;

  •  adjust the language regarding the local hiring review committee composition with how the committee and local hiring law in general have adapted since the original enactment of the LHL;

  • remove automatic waivers for collective bargaining agreements, requiring that all waivers need to be applied for and approved; and

  • correct for some redundancies in the text of the law and definitions.


The public comment period for this regulation will open April 4th, 2022. You can find the full text online here: Local Hiring Rules
