NEW RULE ON EMPLOYMENT & SSNs

Effective December 12, 2012, all New York employers (except the state or its political subdivisions) are prohibited from requiring individuals to disclose or furnish their Social Security numbers (SSNs) for any purpose in connection with any activity. Employers are also barred from refusing any service, privilege, or right to individuals wholly or partly because they refused to disclose or furnish their SSNs. However, there are several exceptions to this prohibition.

See General Business Law § 399-ddd.
