BILL NUMBER:S4762A

TITLE OF BILL:

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the labor law, in relation to reducing the number of hours of
part-time work needed by employees for employer qualification for the
New York youth works tax credit

PURPOSE:
This bill would reduce from 20 to 10, the number of hours of part-time
work needed by employees for employer qualification for the New York
youth works tax credit.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 - Amends subdivision (c) of section 25-a of the labor law,
as added by section 1 of part D of Chapter 56 of the laws of 2011.

Section 2 - Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The New York Works tax credit provides a tax break for businesses that
employ local, at-risk youth between the ages of 16 and 24. In order
to qualify for the credit, businesses must employ youth for a minimum
of 20 hours per week. It has been demonstrated that youth who are
employed while attending high school excel academically and graduate
at a higher rate than their peers. Furthermore, providing youth an
opportunity to gain job skills and access to careers at an early age
helps provide a qualified workforce for New York.

Businesses that have participated in the New York Youth Work program
have expressed concern related to the requirement that a youth must
work at least 20 hours per week. Many of the youth that participate
in the program are attending high school or college full-time.
Working a minimum of 20 hours per week has a direct impact on the
student's ability to focus on his or her studies. Reducing the
minimum number of hours per week a youth must be employed by a
participating employer will let the student focus on his or her
academics while at the same time being employed, receiving necessary
job skills and access to jobs and careers.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
