A10197 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10197
 
SPONSOR: Rules (Taylor)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 831 of the laws of 1981, amending the labor law relating to fees and expenses in unemployment insurance proceedings, in relation to the effectiveness there-of.   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To extend such provisions of the Labor Law relating fees and expenses for unemployment insurance proceedings for an additional two years. Under current law, these provisions will expire December 31, 2022.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one extends subdivisions (3)(a) and (3)(c) of Section 538 of the Labor Law until December 31, 2024. Section two sets tlie effective date.   DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORIGINAL AND AMENDED VERSION (IF APPLICABLE): N/A   JUSTIFICATION: Chapter 831 of the Laws of 1981 set standards for fees and compensation of attorneys that represent claimants and fees for any witnesses that may be involved in proceedings before the Unemployment Insurance Appeal Board ("UIAB"). The expiring provisions direct the UIAB to establish qualifications and procedures for the registration of agents authorized to represent claimants. The provisions require agents to register their contact information and post a $500 bond for the benefit of claimants charged certain fees by the agent. The UIAB is required to maintain lists of authorized agents and attorneys who are available to represent claimants and shall make the list available to claimants on request. These provisions ensure that claimants are properly represented and not charged unfair fees. Extending these provisions regarding the registra- tion process allows claimants access to qualified agents.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
