                   IN ASSEMBLY
                                    February 3, 2023
        Introduced  by M. of A. PRETLOW -- read once and referred to the Commit-

        AN ACT to amend the workers' compensation law, in relation to the desig-

          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:

     1    Section  1.  The  workers' compensation law is amended by adding a new
     2  section 138 to read as follows:
     3    § 138. Coverage. Each employer as defined under section  two  of  this
     4  chapter,  or  the board, shall designate the employees for whom coverage
     5  is to be provided under this chapter and no insurance carrier as defined
     6  in subdivision twelve of section two of this chapter shall make  such  a
     7  determination,  nor  shall any such insurance carrier base its premiums,
     8  in whole or in part, on the remuneration paid to  any  person  whom  the
     9  employer  or  the board has not designated for coverage under an employ-
    10  er's workers' compensation insurance policy.  Nothing  in  this  section
    11  shall  alter  an  employer's obligation to provide workers' compensation
    12  coverage to its employees as determined by such employer  or  the  board
    13  pursuant to section ten of this chapter or any other law, nor shall this
    14  section  release  any employer from the penalties established under this
    15  chapter or any other chapter for non-compliance with the  provisions  of
    16  this chapter.
    17    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
