Protecting Your Company From Harmful Legislation

NYSA Legislative Successes That Directly Saved our Membership Time and Money

1.) In March 2019, the NYSDOL announced that it would withdraw the proposed predictive scheduling regulations. The draft regulations already included an exception for “employees whose work assignments are subject to work orders, or cancellations thereof,” which we believe was due to the work of NYSA. 
    • NYSA, in collaboration with ASA, had previously submitted a white paper to the NYSDOL highlighting the numerous issues and burdens these types of rules would place on staffing firms.
    • NYSA also had a conference call with NYSDOL representatives to discuss these concerns.

2.) Through NYSA's efforts at our 2019 Annual Lobby Day in Albany, we were able to block the "Fair Pay Act" legislation. The legislation provides that it shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer to discriminate between employees on the basis of sex, race and/or national origin by paying different wages.

3.) Regulators have agreed that the NYS and NYC harassment training videos could dove tail and not be duplicative. 


It’s true; these wins help the entire industry, whether or not they are NYSA members. But if our membership drops, we won’t have the necessary funds to continue the fight and everyone will lose. Please do the right thing and continue to support NYSA so our important legislative advocacy can continue.  The savings will be worth many times your membership dollars.
