Impact of the Pandemic on New York City's Municipal Workforce
New York (State). Office of the State Comptroller
Lotridge, Christopher
From the Document: "New York City employs the largest municipal workforce in the United States. [...] The City government, like other public employers, was quickly confronted with a number of challenges after the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic took hold in March 2020, including a decline in anticipated resources and a substantial change in the demand for certain municipal services. Largely in response to fiscal challenges, the City's workforce has decreased (through attrition) to 283,809 through November 2021 (5.5 percent), but some agencies and occupations experienced a sharper decline, which may have led to service disruptions in the past and could pose service challenges as normal activity resumes. Overtime has also increased sharply in Fiscal Year (FY) 2022. Only a few days into the new administation [sic], the Mayor directed his agency heads to identify ways to achieve annual savings of 3 percent of City-funded spending beginning in FY 2022, exempting public health agencies and the Department of Correction. The decline in staffing presents an opportunity for the City to re-examine its workforce and to restructure how its programs and services are delivered, in order to achieve efficiencies without the need for layoffs or service cuts."
