New York on PAUSE Complaint Referral and Enforcement Assistance - New York on PAUSE Form:
To assist local authorities with enforcement of these orders, the Governor established the New York State PAUSE (https://covid19.ulstercountyny.gov/new-york-on-pause/) Enforcement Assistance Task Force where individuals can file complaints regarding the operation of non-essential businesses or gatherings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through an online form or by calling 1-833-789-0470. These complaints are reviewed for completeness, accuracy, and applicability under the orders, and then referred to local authorities (as designated by the county leadership) by a team of investigators from multiple state agencies. In addition to assessing the credibility of complaints, these skilled investigators can assist local authorities in their front-line role of responding to alleged violations of the orders by providing guidance on available civil and criminal enforcement tools.
(Please Note: Specific complaints from employees against their employers should be directed to the Department of Labor through their online form)
