AN ACT to amend the labor  law,  the  executive  law  and  the  workers'
  compensation  law,  in  relation to establishing regulations regarding
  employment of domestic workers including hours  of  labor,  wages  and
  employment contracts

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings and intent.  Many thousands of  domes-
tic workers are employed in New York state as housekeepers, nannies, and
companions  to  the elderly. The labor of domestic workers is central to
the ongoing prosperity that the state enjoys, and yet, despite the value
of their work, domestic workers do not receive the  same  protection  of
many  state  laws  as  do  workers in other industries. Domestic workers
often labor under harsh conditions, work long hours for low wages  with-
out  benefits or job security, are isolated in their workplaces, and are
endangered  by  sexual  harassment  and  assault,  as  well  as  verbal,
emotional  and  psychological abuse.  Moreover, many domestic workers in
the state of New York are women of color who, because of  race  and  sex
discrimination, are particularly vulnerable to unfair labor practices.
  The  legislature finds that because domestic workers care for the most
important elements of their employers' lives, their families and  homes,
it  is  in  the  interest of employees, employers, and the people of the

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
