If you work for a Construction Labor Provider—also known as a “body shop” or temp agency—you have rights regardless of your immigration status or previous arrest record.

Construction Labor Providers that assign you to do construction work or manual labor on NYC worksites must have a license from the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP), and they must give you required notices in English and in your primary language for your signature.

You can make several complaints about Construction Labor Providers, including:

  • Operating without a license
  • Written notices not provided
  • Written notices not provided in a primary language
  • Notice of Certification not provided or incomplete
  • Notice of Rights not provided when hired
  • Notice of Assignment not provided or incomplete

By Email

Email your complaint to consumers@dcwp.nyc.gov. Please be as specific as possible about the problem.

By Phone
