BILL NUMBER:S261

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the labor law, in relation to requiring farm labor contractors
to provide certified copies of payroll records

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To provide for enhanced enforcement of the labor law in the farming
industry.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 Amends the Labor Law Section 212-a (2) (d) (e). Re-letters
paragraphs d and e to paragraphs e and f and adds a new paragraph d.
Requires every farm labor contractor to provide a certified true copy
of all payroll records to the Commissioner.

Section 2 - Effective Date

EXISTING LAW:
Current farm labor law makes no provision regarding the provision of
certified payroll records to the Commissioner.

JUSTIFICATION:
The enforcement of the labor wage law would be enhanced by increased
awareness on the part of farm labor contractors of the need for
accuracy in record keeping. This requirement would assure the
department of labor that wage and hour law was complied with through
the inspection of payroll records on a regular basis.
