AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation to permitted deductions  from

  thereof

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

  Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 193 of the labor law, as added  by
chapter 548 of the laws of 1966, is amended to read as follows:
  1. No employer shall make any deduction from the wages of an employee,
except deductions which:
  a.  are  made in accordance with the provisions of any law or any rule
or regulation issued by any governmental  agency  INCLUDING  REGULATIONS
PROMULGATED UNDER PARAGRAPH C AND PARAGRAPH D OF THIS SUBDIVISION; or
  b. are expressly authorized in writing by the employee and are for the
benefit  of  the employee[;], provided that such authorization is VOLUN-
TARY AND ONLY GIVEN FOLLOWING RECEIPT BY THE EMPLOYEE OF WRITTEN  NOTICE
OF  ALL  TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE PAYMENT AND/OR ITS BENEFITS AND THE
DETAILS OF THE MANNER IN WHICH DEDUCTIONS WILL BE MADE.  WHENEVER  THERE
IS  A  SUBSTANTIAL  CHANGE  IN  THE  TERMS OR CONDITIONS OF THE PAYMENT,
INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY CHANGE IN THE AMOUNT OF THE DEDUCTION,
OR A SUBSTANTIAL CHANGE IN THE BENEFITS OF THE DEDUCTION OR THE  DETAILS
IN  THE MANNER IN WHICH DEDUCTIONS SHALL BE MADE, THE EMPLOYER SHALL, AS
SOON AS PRACTICABLE, BUT IN EACH CASE BEFORE ANY INCREASED DEDUCTION  IS
MADE  ON  THE EMPLOYEE'S BEHALF, NOTIFY THE EMPLOYEE PRIOR TO THE IMPLE-
MENTATION OF THE CHANGE.  SUCH AUTHORIZATION SHALL BE kept  on  file  on
the  employer's  premises  FOR  THE  PERIOD DURING WHICH THE EMPLOYEE IS
EMPLOYED BY THE EMPLOYER AND FOR SIX YEARS AFTER SUCH  EMPLOYMENT  ENDS.
NOTWITHSTANDING  THE  FOREGOING,  EMPLOYEE  AUTHORIZATION FOR DEDUCTIONS
UNDER THIS SECTION MAY ALSO BE PROVIDED TO THE EMPLOYER PURSUANT TO  THE
TERMS  OF  A COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT. Such authorized deductions
shall be limited to payments for:
  (I) insurance premiums[,] AND PREPAID LEGAL PLANS;
