 AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation  to  regulations  promulgated
   for  systematic  and  sustained  efforts to find work for unemployment
   benefits

   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.  Subdivision 2 of section 591 of the labor law, as amended
 by a chapter of the laws of 2020 amending  the  labor  law  relating  to
 regulations  promulgated  for  systematic  and sustained efforts to find
 work for unemployment benefits, as proposed in legislative bills numbers
 S.2231 and A.3033, is amended to read as follows:
   2. Availability, capability, and work search.  No  benefits  shall  be
 payable  to any claimant who is not capable of work or who is not ready,
 willing and able to work in his or her usual employment or in any  other
 for  which he or she is reasonably fitted by training and experience and
 who is not actively seeking work. In order to be actively seeking work a
 claimant must be engaged in systematic and  sustained  efforts  to  find
 work.  The commissioner shall promulgate regulations defining systematic
 and sustained efforts to find work and setting standards for  the  proof
 of  work  search  efforts.  Such regulations shall take into account the
 need for claimants to provide child care for their child  or  children[,
 and the regulations shall ensure that such claimants are able to satisfy
 the standards for proof of work search efforts].
   §  2.  This  act  shall  take  effect on the same date and in the same
 manner as a chapter of the laws of 2020 amending the labor law  relating
 to  regulations promulgated for systematic and sustained efforts to find
 work for unemployment benefits, as proposed in legislative bills numbers
 S.2231 and A.3033, takes effect.
