TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to reducing
the number of hours of part-time work needed by employees for employer
qualification for the New York youth works tax credit
Purpose Or General Idea Of Bill: This bill would reduce from 20 to
10, the number of hours of part-time work needed by certain employees,
for employer qualification for the New York Youth Works tax credit.
Summary Of Specific Provisions:
Section 1 - Amends subdivision (c) of section 25-a of the labor law,
as added by section 1 of part ID of Chapter 56 of the laws of 2011.
Section 2 - Effective date.
Justification: The New York Youth Works tax credit provides a tax
break for businesses that employ local, at-risk youth between the ages
of 16 and 24. In order to qualify for the credit, businesses must
employ youth for a minimum of 20 hours per week. It has been
demonstrated that youth who are employed while attending high school
excel academically and graduate at a higher rate than their peers.
Furthermore, providing youth an opportunity to gain job skills and
access to careers at an early age helps provide a qualified workforce
for New York.
Businesses that have participated in the New York Youth Works program
have expressed concern related to the requirement that a youth must
work at least 20 hours per week. Many of the youth that participate in
the program are attending high school or college full-time. Working a
minimum of 20 hours per week has a direct impact on the students
ability to focus on his or her studies. Reducing the minimum number of
hours per week that a youth who is enrolled in high school full-time
must be employed by a participating employer will let the student
focus on his or her academics while at the same time being employed,
receiving necessary job skills and access to jobs and careers.
Prior Legislative History: This is a new bill.
Fiscal Implications For State And Local Governments: None.
Effective Date: This act shall take effect immediately.
