New laws for the New Year

January 1, 2016 will see many new laws take effect nationwide.

In New York State, those laws include the following:

• A minimum wage hike
• A tax Cut for businesses
• New breastfeeding rights
• Expansion of Telehealth services
• Increased veterans property tax exemptions
• Expedited access to Child Protective Services records to aid in locating missing children
• A “Women's Equality Agenda”

If you believe one or more of these laws will affect you, do not hesitate to contact an attorney to advise you of your rights and responsibilities under these new laws.

Stay safe, stay informed and have a Happy New Year.
