 AN ACT to amend the social services law, in relation to conciliation and
   non-compliance  with  public  assistance  employment;  and  to  repeal

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

   § 2. Section 341-a of the social services law, as added by chapter 562
 of the laws of 2015, is amended to read as follows:
   § [341-a] 341.  Re-engagement; conciliation; refusal  to  participate.
 1.  [The provisions of this section shall apply to persons who are resi-

   2.] (a) Consistent with federal law and regulations and this title, if
 a participant has failed or refused to comply with the  requirements  of
 this  title and the district has determined that he or she is not exempt
 from such requirements and has verified  that  appropriate  child  care,
 transportation,  and  accommodations for disability were in place at the
 time of such failure or refusal,  the  social  services  district  shall
 issue  a  re-engagement  notice  in  plain language indicating that such
 failure or refusal has taken place and of the right of such  participant
 to  avoid a pro-rata reduction in public assistance benefits through the
 re-engagement process. "Re-engagement process" shall  mean  the  process
 through  which  a  participant  may avoid a pro-rata reduction in public
 assistance benefits by agreeing to comply with the requirements of  this
 title consistent with any medical condition which may limit the individ-
 ual's  ability  to  participate  in  work  activities,  by notifying the
 district that he or she has become exempt from the requirements of  this
 title,  or  by  resolving  the  reasons for such failure or refusal at a
 conciliation conference. The notice shall indicate that the  participant
