AN ACT to amend the  labor  law,  in  relation  to  conditions  for  the

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

  Section  1.  Section  593  of the labor law is amended by adding a new
subdivision 6 to read as follows:
  6. (A)  FOR  THE  PURPOSES  OF  THIS  SECTION,  "TEMPORARY  EMPLOYMENT
SERVICE"  MEANS A FIRM THAT EMPLOYS EMPLOYEES AND ASSIGNS SUCH EMPLOYEES
TO CLIENTS TO SUPPORT OR SUPPLEMENT THE WORK FORCE OF  SUCH  CLIENTS  IN
WORK  SITUATIONS  SUCH AS EMPLOYEE ABSENCES, TEMPORARY SKILLS SHORTAGES,
SEASONAL WORKLOADS, AND SPECIAL  ASSIGNMENTS  AND  PROJECTS.  "TEMPORARY
EMPLOYEE" MEANS AN EMPLOYEE ASSIGNED TO WORK FOR THE CLIENTS OF A TEMPO-
RARY EMPLOYMENT SERVICE.
  (B)  (I) AN EMPLOYEE OF A TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT SERVICE SHALL BE DEEMED
TO HAVE VOLUNTARILY SEPARATED FROM EMPLOYMENT IF SUCH EMPLOYEE DOES  NOT
CONTACT  THE  TEMPORARY  EMPLOYMENT SERVICE FOR REASSIGNMENT WITHIN FIVE
BUSINESS DAYS OF THE COMPLETION OF AN ASSIGNMENT. SUCH CONTACT SHALL  BE
MADE  BY  PERSONAL  APPEARANCE  OR BY TELEPHONE OR ELECTRONIC FACSIMILE;
PROVIDED THAT SUCH CONTACT CAN BE VERIFIED.
  (II) FAILURE TO CONTACT THE TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT SERVICE SHALL NOT  BE
DEEMED  A  VOLUNTARY  SEPARATION FROM EMPLOYMENT UNLESS THE CLAIMANT HAS
BEEN ADVISED OF THE OBLIGATION TO CONTACT SUCH SERVICE  UPON  COMPLETION
OF  ASSIGNMENTS AND THAT UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS MAY BE DENIED FOR FAILURE
TO DO SO.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day  after  it  shall
have become a law.
