BILL:

S.1227 (Spano) / A.8017

Support

SUBJECT:

Pharmacy Whistleblower

 

DATE:

May 27, 2003

 

The Business Council of New York State, whose membership includes almost 4,000 member firms as well as hundreds of chambers of commerce and professional trade associations, has reviewed the above mentioned legislation and opposes its enactment.

This bill would amend the Labor Law and expand whistleblower protections beyond the already existing protections available for pharmacy employees in Section 740 of the Labor Law.

This bill is not necessary or appropriate because:

For these reasons, The Business Council opposes this legislation and respectfully urges that it not be enacted by the Senate.
