BILL NUMBER:S6578

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to
prohibiting discrimination by an employer based on an employee's
decisions regarding his or her reproductive health

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

To ensure that individuals are able to make their own reproductive
health care decisions without incurring adverse employment
consequences because of their employers' personal beliefs about those
decisions.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends the labor law by adding a new section 203-e to
prohibit an employer from discriminating against an employee on the
basis of the individual's or a dependent's reproductive health
decision making, including a decision to use or access a particular
drug, device or medical service. It also prohibits discrimination
based on an employer's personal beliefs about such services.

Section 2 makes clear that the bill does not conflict with any other
employee protections provided through any provision of law or
collective bargaining agreement.

Section 3 establishes the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires that health insurance plans
cover FDA-approved birth control methods without out-of-pocket costs.
Some for-profit employers have attempted to prevent employees from
accessing this benefit because it conflicts with their personal
beliefs and, as a result, over 100 federal lawsuits have been filed by
employers to deny employees this benefit. Employers should not be
able to discriminate or interfere in employees' personal medical
decisions because of the employer's personal beliefs.

While federal and state laws have been enacted which demonstrate a
commitment to protect individuals against employment discrimination,
loopholes exist which leave employees vulnerable to discrimination
based on their reproductive health decisions. The Legislature must
ensure that the legal loopholes are corrected to ensure that
employees' decisions about pregnancy, contraception, and reproductive
health are also protected under state law.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This is new legislation.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:


This Act shall take effect immediately
