The latest update on CHIP about the federal eviction moratorium suggests that it will end despite the efforts that the democratic party had in trying to extend the moratorium. This moratorium implemented by the CDC only impacted one third of the states due to the fact that most states, such as New York, implemented their own eviction bans. Although we all know that this will not mean a wave of evictions are going to happen right away, the democratic party in New York has said that they will not abandon their renters like that. On that note we can expect to see protests and rallies in the next few weeks as the citizens of New York speak up about the matter.
State Lawmakers are going to call Legislature to extend the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act (CEEFPA), along with the COVID-19 Emergency Protect Our Small Businesses Act (CEPOSBA), which will prohibit the eviction of residential and commercial tenants suffering COVID-related hardship through August 31, 2021
In other news the The New York State Department of Labor has published the new NY Hero Act prevention plan. All NY employers must come up with their own plan, hand out copies to their employees and display it somewhere visible in the workplace, by August 6, 2021 but this will not go into effect until the labor department designates COVID-19 as an airborne infection that is currently circulating the state. I guess you can say we will cross that bridge when we get there.
