BILL NUMBER: S1045 SPONSOR: RAMOS 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 minors, ages twelve through seventeen, to serve as a referee, umpire or official at a youth sporting event without a certificate of employment or permit in limited circumstances. There are multiple protections in the bill to address parental approval, academic criteria and Labor Law concerns. This legislation would allow more young people to get paid to perform this work in their communities, as well as fill what is in many communi- ties a shortage of youth sports officials.
