  Section 1. Short title. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as
"Joanne's law".
  S 2. Paragraph a of subdivision 2 of section 27-b of the labor law, as
amended  by  chapter  504  of  the  laws  of 2011, is amended to read as
follows:
  a. "Employer" means: (1) ANY PRIVATE OR NON-MUNICIPAL INDUSTRY, TRADE,
OCCUPATION OR PROCESS; (2) the state; [(2)] (3) a political  subdivision
of the state, provided, however that this subdivision shall not mean any
employer  as defined in section twenty-eight hundred one-a of the educa-
tion law; [(3)] (4) a public authority, a public benefit corporation, or
any other governmental agency or instrumentality thereof; and [(4)]  (5)
an  authorized  agency as defined in paragraph (a) of subdivision ten of
section three hundred  seventy-one  of  the  social  services  law  that

ly court act.
  S 3. Section 27-b of the labor law is amended by adding a new subdivi-
