BILL NUMBER:S2042

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to enacting
"Joanne's law"

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Requires notification of actions of
perpetrator of crime in workplace to former employer or workplace

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Provides that this act shall be known and may be cited as
"Joanne's Law."

Section 2: Amends the Labor Law by adding a new section 44 which
requires that employers or workplaces are notified if former employees
or visitors whom were convicted of crimes that were committed in those
workplaces are released from incarceration or violate their probation or
parole.

Section 3: Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: The purpose of this bill is to notify an employer or
workplace when a former employee is released from incarceration or has
violated his or her probation or parole, if they committed a crime in
that workplace. This bill would safeguard employers and employees from
potential retaliation from former employees who have committed workplace
violence or crimes in the workplace. Notifying an employer would enable
a workplace to take the proper measures or precautions to protect them-
selves and their employees.
