NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10427

  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to requiring employers to offer paid leave to veteran employees on Veterans' day   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation to requiring public employers to guarantee a paid leave of absence for public employees who are Veter- ans on Veterans Day   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends labor law to require that public employers guarantee a leave of absence on veterans day for public employees who are Veterans. Section 2 establishes that the act shall take effect immediately.   JUSTIFICATION: Over 675, 000 veterans call New York State home, many of whom partic- ipate in the workforce, Since 1954, Veterans Day has been a federal holiday in the United States, in which many individuals, whether Veterans or not, are excused from work, having their place of work closed on this day. There are, however, many public employees who, depending upon the nature of their work, work a job that doesn't allow for their office to close in obser- vance of Veterans Day. Although these employees are often compensated with incentives such as overtime pay, Veterans employed in these jobs aren't guaranteed the choice to observe the holiday meant to honor them . Veterans Day is meant to honor these individuals and the incredible sacrifices that they have made on our country' s behalf by serving in the military. Every veteran continuing to serve this country by working in a public job should have the choice to observe Veterans Day if they wish to do so. This bill would require public employers to allow employees who are veterans the option to observe Veterans Day, unless they are designated as a critical employee in which they would be entitled to a leave of absence on another day in lieu of Veterans Day.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill 2024   FISCAL IMPLILICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: The act shall take effect immediately after it shall have become a law,
