Int 2318-2021 *Diana I. Ayala Proposed Int. No. 2318-ALicensing of construction labor providers.IntroductionThis bill would require certain businesses that supply their employees to clients for the performance of construction work or manual labor on the client’s construction site, in exchange for compensation, to be licensed. The term “construction” in this bill explicitly excludes handyman work. Applying for a license would require certain signed statements and select information on business operations, and each covered business would have to supply their workers with a series of notices: on their rights as workers covered by this bill; training and certifications the employees would need to perform their work duties; and information on the employees’ work assignments. The businesses’ clients would also receive some of these notices, and these clients could be subject to civil penalties if they use the services of an unlicensed business that is required to be licensed by this bill. Businesses that violate the bill’s subchapter would also be subject to penalties. Employees of the businesses aggrieved by a violation of the bill’s subchapter would be able to initiate a private right of action against their employers for violations of the bill, including for retaliation against employees for availing themselves of rights provided by this bill.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available

Int 2410-2021 *Selvena N. Brooks-Powers Proposed Int. No. 2410-AAgency actions and licensee disclosures in the event of a breach of security.IntroductionThis bill would amend the City’s data breach notification laws to align them with requirements in New York’s SHIELD Act. It would make certain definitions in City law more consistent with State law. City agencies that have suffered a security breach involving persons’ private identifying information would be required to promptly disclose it to the City’s Chief Privacy Officer, the Office of Cyber Command, and the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications; formerly the NYPD received this type of disclosure. The obligation to make this type of disclosure – including to affected persons – would be expanded to situations in which the information was reasonably believed to have been accessed, disclosed or used by an unauthorized person. With some exceptions, the bill would mandate that if 5,000 or more New York residents must be notified at one time pursuant to Section 10-502 of the City’s Administrative Code, the notifying agency must also notify consumer reporting agencies as to the timing, content and distribution of the notices, and approximate number of affected individuals. Certain agencies would have to coordinate and keep records on data breaches. The bill would mandate that Department of Consumer and Worker Protection, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and Taxi and Limousine Commission licensees required to make a data breach notification pursuant to State law, promptly submit a copy of the notification to their licensing agencies.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
