AN  ACT  to  amend  the  limited  liability  company law, in relation to
  liability of members for wages due to laborers, servants or  employees
  by domestic and foreign limited liability companies

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

  Section 1. Subdivision (c) of section 609  of  the  limited  liability
company  law, as added by chapter 537 of the laws of 2014, is amended to
read as follows:
  (c) Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivisions (a) and (b) of this
section, the ten members with the largest percentage ownership interest,
as determined as of the beginning of the period during which the  unpaid
services  referred  to  in this section are performed, of every DOMESTIC
limited liability company, OR OF ANY FOREIGN LIMITED LIABILITY  COMPANY,
WHEN  THE UNPAID SERVICES WERE PERFORMED IN THE STATE, shall jointly and
severally be personally liable for all debts, wages or salaries due  and
owing  to  any  of  its  laborers,  servants  or employees, for services
performed by them for such limited liability company. Before such labor-
er, servant or employee shall charge such member for such  services,  he
or  she  shall  give  notice  in  writing  to such member that he or she
intends to hold such member liable under this section. Such notice shall
be given within one  hundred  eighty  days  after  termination  of  such
services.  An action to enforce such liability shall be commenced within
ninety days after the return of an  execution  unsatisfied  against  the
limited  liability company upon a judgment recovered against it for such
services. A member who has paid more than his  or  her  pro  rata  share
under  this  section shall be entitled to contribution pro rata from the
other members liable under this section with respect to  the  excess  so
paid, over and above his or her pro rata share, and may sue them jointly
