BILL NUMBER:S4887

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the labor law, in relation to excluding substitute teachers
from the limits imposed on unemployment insurance benefits available
during vacation periods
for professional employees of educational institutions

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL:
This bill addresses the concerns
of substitute teachers who have no means of income during the summer
months.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill amends Section 1. Subdivision 10
section 590 of the labor law by adding a new paragraph (d) to read as
follows:

The foregoing provisions of this subdivision shall not apply if the
claimant was employed in an instructional capacity on a substitute or
per diem basis and any such claimant shall not be denied benefits
under this section solely by reason of this subdivision.

JUSTIFICATION:
Unemployment is a benefit that is intended to cover
workers during times of unemployment when they have no income. Under
current law however, substitute teachers in New York State are unable
to receive unemployment when they become unemployed during summer
months.
If they receive no salary during the vacation months they often
experience financial hardship waiting for the school year to begin
again. This law would exclude substitute teachers by adding a new
subdivision to the labor law.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2010: A.9093

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
