Legislative Memo

518.465.7511

BILL:

A. 3637 (John)

Support

SUBJECT:

Comparable Worth

 

DATE:

January 24, 2006

 

This legislation would amend New York State's Labor Law, expanding the equal pay for equal work law to include equal pay for different work.

The Business Council of New York State opposes this bill because:

The concept of comparable worth has been rejected by the courts and should be rejected by you.

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