Conditions of Employment
Correction (COR) CHAPTER 43, ARTICLE 6-A
§ 153. Conditions of Employment. 1. A prisoner shall be permitted to
be employed only if:

(a) The rates of pay and other conditions of employment will not be
less than those paid or provided for work of similar nature in the
locality in which the work is to be performed.

(b) The commissioner finds, after consultation with representatives of
local union central bodies or similar labor union organizations, that
such employment will not result in the displacement of employed workers,
impair existing contracts for services, or be applied, except where a
prisoner is to be hired by an employer for whom he worked prior to his
conviction, in skills, crafts, or trades in which there is a surplus of
available gainful labor in the locality.

2. The State Department of Labor shall exercise the same supervision
over conditions of employment for prisoners participating in work
release programs as such department does over conditions of employment
for free persons.

3. In no event shall a prisoner be employed in an establishment which
has a labor dispute.
