In December 2015, the New York City Commission on Human Rights issued guidance stating that "employers, landlords, and business owners could violate the Law on the basis of gender identity and expression" by "intentionally failing to use an individual's preferred name, pronoun or title." Civil penalties for violating the law are up to $250,000, and there is "no limit to the amount of compensatory damages the Commission may award to a victim of discrimination."
