BILL NUMBER:S4234

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the workers' compensation law, in
relation to covered employment as a domestic worker for temporary
disability benefits

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 would make a technical
amendment to Chapter 481 of 2010, the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights.
It would amend section 202(2) of the Workers Compensation Law to
clarify that domestic workers who work at least twenty hours per week
and meet the duration of employment standard of four weeks are covered
under the temporary disability benefits law.

Section 2 is the effective date of the bill.

JUSTIFICATION: This bill would make clear the original intent in the
Domestic Workers Bill of Rights in amending section 201 (5) of the
Workers Compensation Law to eliminate the forty hour requirement and
provide temporary disability benefits coverage for workers who work at
least twenty hours. The Sponsor's Memorandum on the Domestic Workers
Bill of Rights stated, "In addition, the bill grants disability
insurance to part time domestic workers...". In an August 31, 2010
letter to Governor Paterson, the Workers Compensation Board stated its
support of this proposal and urged that this technical correction be
made.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to New York State and its subdivisions.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
