BILL:

S.3666-A (Libous)/A.6671-A (Heastie)

  Support

SUBJECT:

Fair Broadcast Employment Act of 2014

 

S.3666-A (Libous)/
A.6671-A (Heastie)

DATE:

May 29, 2014

 

This bill would allow an exemption to section 202-k of the labor law and permit the negotiation of non-compete, post-employment agreements between a broadcast employer and “key" broadcast employees. Section 202-k does not currently permit such agreements. The Business Council supports this legislation.

For these reasons, The Business Council supports enactment of this bill by the New York State Legislature
