BILL NUMBER:S4762

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to reducing
the number of hours of part-time work needed by employees for employer
qualification for the New York youth works tax credit

PURPOSE: This bill would reduce from 20 to 10, the number of hours of
part-time work needed by employees for employer qualification for the
New York youth works tax credit.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 - Amends subdivision (c) of section 25-a of the labor law,
as added by section 1 of part D of Chapter 56 of the laws of 2011.

Section 2 - Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: The New York Works tax credit provides a tax break for
businesses that employ local, at-risk youth between the ages of 16 and
24. In order to qualify for the credit, businesses must employ youth
for a minimum of 20 hours per week. It has been demonstrated that
youth who are employed while attending high school excel academically
and graduate at a higher rate than their peers. Furthermore, providing
youth an opportunity to gain job skills and access to careers at an
early age helps provide a qualified workforce for New York.

Businesses that have participated in the New York Youth Work program
have expressed concern related to the requirement that a youth must
work at least 20 hours per week. Many of the youth that participate in
the program are attending high school or college full-time. Working a
minimum of 20 hours per week has a direct impact on the student's
ability to focus on his or her studies. Reducing the minimum number of
hours per week a youth must be employed by a participating employer
will let the student focus on his or her academics while at the same
time being employed, receiving necessary job skills and access to jobs
and careers.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
