shall not engage in any of the following activities or conduct:

1. Direct an applicant to an employer for the purpose of obtaining

ordinary and necessary travel expenses incurred by the applicant as a
result of such referral, within twenty-four hours of making a demand

employment is or would be in violation of state or federal laws
governing minimum wages or child labor, or in violation of article
sixty-five of the education law relating to compulsory education or
article four of the labor law, or, that a labor dispute is in progress,
without notifying the applicant of such fact, and delivering to him or
her a clear written statement that a labor dispute exists at the place
of such employment, or make any referral to an employment or occupation
prohibited by law.

3. Require applicants for employment to subscribe to any publication
or incidental service or contribute to the cost of advertising.
