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.  (A)  Cancellation  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-payment of  premiums  and

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.
  Such  notice  shall be served on the employer by delivering it to him,
her or it or by sending it by mail, by certified or  registered  letter,
return  receipt  requested, addressed to the employer at his, her or its
last known place of business; provided that, if the employer be a  part-
