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

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-

  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.
