AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to unlawful discriminato-
  ry practices

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

  Section 1. Subdivision 5 of section  292  of  the  executive  law,  as
amended  by  chapter  481  of  the  laws  of 2010, is amended to read as
follows:
  5. The term "employer" does not include any employer with  fewer  than
four  persons  in  his  or her employ except as set forth in section two
hundred ninety-six-b of this [title] ARTICLE, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT IN
THE CASE OF AN ACTION FOR DISCRIMINATION BASED ON SEX PURSUANT TO SUBDI-
VISION ONE OF SECTION TWO  HUNDRED  NINETY-SIX  OF  THIS  ARTICLE,  WITH
RESPECT TO SEXUAL HARASSMENT ONLY, THE TERM "EMPLOYER" SHALL INCLUDE ALL
EMPLOYERS WITHIN THE STATE.
  S 2. Severability clause. If any clause, sentence, paragraph, subdivi-
sion, section or part of this act shall be adjudged by a court of compe-
tent  jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair
or invalidate the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in its opera-
tion to the clause, sentence, paragraph, subdivision,  section  or  part
thereof  directly  involved  in  the  controversy in which such judgment
shall have been rendered. It is hereby declared to be the intent of  the
legislature  that  this act would have been enacted even if such invalid
provisions had not been included herein.
  S 3. This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day  after  it  shall
have become a law.


 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
