Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

The New York City Commission on Human Rights (the “Commission”) is proposing to amend its rules to clarify protections on the basis of race, creed, and religion.

Race includes characteristics and traits commonly or historically associated with race or ethnicity, including but not limited to hair textures, hairstyles, including the use of head coverings and hair length. Similarly, hair textures, hairstyles, head coverings and hair length can be elements of individuals’ religious practices. Discrimination based on hair can function as a proxy for discrimination based on race or religion and constitute a form of unlawful stereotyping.

This rule is not intended to exclude claims for hair-based discrimination on the basis of disability, gender, age or other protected status under the New York City Human Rights Law.

These proposed rules would amend title 47 of the Rules of the City of New York to explain covered entities’ obligations under the City Human Rights Law.

The Commission’s authority for these rules is found in sections 905(e)(9) and 1043 of the New York City Charter and Administrative Code section 8-107.
