BILL NUMBER:S2069

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to
directing the granting of excused leave to public officers and
employees of this state to undertake screening for cervical cancer

PURPOSE: This bill would grant excused leave of absence of up to four
hours to public officers and employees of the state, counties,
municipalities and school districts in order to undertake screening
for cervical cancer.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill amends Civil Service Law § 159-b to add cervical
cancer screening to existing provisions which allows every public
officer or employee of this state or an employee of any county,
municipality or school district to be absent from her duties or
services for up to four hours annually for screening of breast cancer.

Section 2 of the bill provides for the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: This benefit is already provided in statute to
encourage breast cancer screening. Early detection of cervical cancer,
as well as breast cancer, is critical to treatment, survivorship, and
reduction of costs. New York State would send a powerful message in
the fight against cervical cancer and set a positive example to
employers across the state by encouraging its employees to undertake
cervical cancer screening.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: S.7243 passed Senate.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the 90th day after it
becomes law; provided, however, that effective immediately, the
addition, amendment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary
for the implementation of this act on its effective date are
authorized and directed to be made and completed on or before such
effective date.
