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;
