AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation to enacting the  Unemployment
  Insurance Liability Act of 2013

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

  Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as
the "Unemployment Insurance Liability Act of 2013".
  S  2.  Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds and declares
that employers that have  relocated  out  of  New  York  state  are  not
required  to  make scheduled quarterly contributions to the unemployment
insurance fund once they have left the state.
  The legislature further declares that this creates a continuing  hard-
ship on the fund which threatens its solvency.
  Therefore, the legislature declares that employer contributions to the
unemployment  insurance  fund shall continue even after the employer has
left New York state, where former employees are receiving benefits.
  S 3. Subdivision 1 of section 562 of the  labor  law,  as  amended  by
chapter 103 of the laws of 1965, is amended to read as follows:
   1.    Required coverage. (a)  Any employer who has once become liable
for contributions under this article with respect to persons other  than
persons  employed in personal or domestic service in private homes shall
[cease to be liable as of] REMAIN LIABLE UNTIL  the  first  day  of  the
calendar  quarter  next  following the filing of his written application
provided the commissioner finds that the employer has not RELOCATED  OUT
OF STATE OR, with respect to [such] persons OTHER THAN THOSE EMPLOYED IN
PERSONAL  OR  DOMESTIC  SERVICE  IN  PRIVATE HOMES, paid remuneration of
three hundred dollars or more in  any  of  the  four  calendar  quarters
preceding such day.
   (b)  AN  EMPLOYER  WHO HAS RELOCATED OUT OF STATE SHALL REMAIN LIABLE
FOR CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE FUND FOR TWO QUARTERS FROM THE  DATE  ON  WHICH
