NEW YORK - Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement demanding that fast food restaurants provide employees with personal protective equipment (PPE) in accordance with New York law:

“It is critical to public safety and required under the law that fast food restaurants provide adequate PPE to their workers. These workers are risking their lives to serve New Yorkers during this crisis, and they must have the proper resources to protect themselves and those around them. My office will not hesitate to take action if we determine that these companies are in violation of executive orders that were implemented to protect our communities and stop the spread of COVID-19.” 

If you believe your employer is violating labor laws or your rights during this public health crisis, please report it to the Attorney General’s Office by emailing labor.bureau@ag.ny.gov or calling 1-800-771-7755.
