BILL:

S.3509 (Savino) / A.4468 (Brodsky)

Support

SUBJECT:

Expands Whistleblower Protections

 

DATE:

April 27, 2009

 

This bill would amend the state Labor Law and expand whistleblower protections beyond the already existing protections available in Sections 740 and 741 of the Labor Law. The Business Council opposes enactment of this bill.

This is the kind of legislation that contributes to New York's declining reputation as a place to move or expand business as reflected in these surveys.

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