                   IN ASSEMBLY

        AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to unlawful discriminato-

          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
     1    Section  1.  Subdivision  5  of  section  292 of the executive law, as
     2  amended by chapter 481 of the laws  of  2010,  is  amended  to  read  as
     3  follows:
     4    5.  The  term "employer" does not include any employer with fewer than
     5  four persons in his or her employ except as set  forth  in  section  two
     6  hundred ninety-six-b of this [title] article, provided, however, that in
     7  the case of an action for discrimination based on sex pursuant to subdi-
     8  vision  one  of  section  two  hundred  ninety-six of this article, with
     9  respect to sexual harassment only, the term "employer" shall include all
    10  employers within the state.
    11    § 2. Severability clause. If any clause, sentence, paragraph, subdivi-
    12  sion, section or part of this act shall be adjudged by a court of compe-
    13  tent jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect,  impair
    14  or invalidate the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in its opera-
    15  tion  to  the  clause, sentence, paragraph, subdivision, section or part
    16  thereof directly involved in the  controversy  in  which  such  judgment
    17  shall  have been rendered. It is hereby declared to be the intent of the
    18  legislature that this act would have been enacted even if  such  invalid
    19  provisions had not been included herein.
    20    §  3.  This  act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall
    21  have become a law.
