AN  ACT to amend the workers' compensation law, in relation to providing
  conditional renewal notices to policyholders

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

  Section  1.  Subdivision  5 of section 54 of the workers' compensation
law, as amended by section 23 of part GG of chapter 57 of  the  laws  of
2013, is amended to read as follows:
  5.  Cancellation,  CONDITIONAL  RENEWAL  and  termination of insurance
contracts. No contract of  insurance  issued  by  an  insurance  carrier
against  liability  arising under this chapter shall be cancelled within
the time limited in such contract for its expiration  unless  notice  is
given as required by this section.  When cancellation is due to non-pay-
ment  of premiums and assessments, such cancellation shall not be effec-
tive until at least ten days after a  notice  of  cancellation  of  such
contract,  on  a  date  specified  in such notice, shall be filed in the
office of the chair and also served on the employer.  When  cancellation
is due to any reason other than non-payment of premiums and assessments,
such  cancellation  shall  not  be  effective until at least thirty days
after a notice of cancellation of such contract, on a date specified  in
such  notice,  shall be filed in the office of the chair and also served
on the employer; provided, however, in either case, that if the employer
has secured insurance  with  another  insurance  carrier  which  becomes
effective prior to the expiration of the time stated in such notice, the
cancellation  shall  be effective as of the date of such other coverage.
No insurer shall refuse to renew any policy insuring  against  liability
arising  under  this  chapter  unless  at least thirty days prior to its
expiration notice of intention not to renew has been filed in the office
of the chair and also served on the employer.

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