        AN  ACT to amend the general obligations law, in relation to prohibiting

     1    Section 1. The general obligations law is  amended  by  adding  a  new
     2  section 5-337 to read as follows:
     3    §  5-337.  Conditions  and  preconditions of employment. 1. As used in
     4  this section the following terms shall have the following meanings:
     5    (a) "Employer" means any person, either individual, corporation, part-
     6  nership, agency, or firm, that employs  an  employee  and  includes  any
     7  person,  either  individual,  corporation, partnership, agency, or firm,
     8  acting directly or indirectly in the interest of an employer in relation
     9  to an employee; and
    10    (b) "Employee" means any person employed by or suffered  or  permitted
    11  to work for an employer.
    12    2.  Notwithstanding  any provision of law to the contrary, no employer
    13  shall require as a condition or  precondition  of  employment  that  any
    14  employee  or  person  seeking  employment waive, arbitrate, or otherwise
    15  diminish any existing or future claim, right, or benefit  to  which  the
    16  employee  or person seeking employment would otherwise be entitled under
    17  any provision of any New York state or federal law.
    18    3. The provisions of this section shall  not  apply  to  contracts  or
    19  agreements  negotiated  with any labor union through collective bargain-
    20  ing.
    21    § 2. This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day  after  it  shall
    22  have become a law.
