BILL NUMBER:S4590 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to permitting the employment of minors as referees, umpires or officials at youth sporting events PURPOSE: This bill amends the labor law to include an exception to allow a minor twelve or thirteen years of age as a referee, umpire or official at a youth sporting event when attendance upon instruction is not required by the Education Law and allows youth ages fourteen through seventeen to be employed as a referee umpire or official; without a certificate of employment or permit, in order to allow more young people to get paid to perform this work, as many leagues are trying to cope with a significant shortage of youth referees. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 adds a new paragraph to subdivision 2 of section 130 of the labor law to include an exception to allow a minor twelve or thirteen years of age as a referee, umpire or official at a youth sporting event when attendance upon instruction is not required by the education law.
