The New York "Freelance Isn't Free Act" establishes and enhances protections for freelance workers. Specifically: the right to written contract, the right to be paid timely and in full and the right to be free of retaliation.

The bill becomes effective May 15, 2017. This local law applies only to contracts entered into on or after the effective date of the law, except that the Director of the Office of Labor Standards may take any actions necessary for the implementation of the law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
