BILL NUMBER:S1308 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to expanding the type and number of employers covered by the provisions of the human rights law PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To make all employers, including those who employ fewer than four persons, subject to anti-discrimination provisions of the state's human rights law. PROVISIONS: This bill amends subdivision 5 of section 292 of the Executive Law, as amended by chapter 481 of the laws of 2010 which defines specific terms used in New York State's Human Rights Law. The law currently defines the term "employer" as not including any employer "with fewer than four persons in his employ." This legislation changes the definition of the term "employer" by extending it to include employers with less than three employees. This definition is further amended by exempting only those employers where at least two-thirds of the employees are closely related by blood or marriage to the employer.
