AN  ACT  to  amend the labor law, in relation to regulations promulgated
  for systematic and sustained efforts to  find  work  for  unemployment
  benefits

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

  Section 1. Subdivision 2 of section 591 of the labor law,  as  amended
by section 12 of part O of chapter 57 of the laws of 2013, is amended to
read as follows:
  2.  Availability,  capability,  and  work search. No benefits shall be
payable to any claimant who is not capable of work or who is not  ready,
willing  and able to work in his or her usual employment or in any other
for which he or she is reasonably fitted by training and experience  and
who is not actively seeking work. In order to be actively seeking work a
claimant  must  be  engaged  in systematic and sustained efforts to find
work. The commissioner shall promulgate regulations defining  systematic
and  sustained  efforts to find work and setting standards for the proof
of work search efforts. SUCH REGULATIONS SHALL  TAKE  INTO  ACCOUNT  THE
NEED  FOR  CLAIMANTS  TO PROVIDE CHILD CARE FOR THEIR CHILD OR CHILDREN,
AND THE REGULATIONS SHALL ENSURE THAT SUCH CLAIMANTS ARE ABLE TO SATISFY
THE STANDARDS FOR PROOF OF WORK SEARCH EFFORTS.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the same date as the  reversion  of
subdivision  2 of section 591 of the labor law as provided in section 10
of chapter 413 of the laws of 2003, as amended.
