NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5825
 
SPONSOR: Cruz
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to the definition of a public employee or employee   PURPOSE OF BILL: This bill will amend CVS-75b to include all employees of judges, justices of the unified court system, and members of the legislature as "public employees," so that workers may report misconduct without fear of retaliation.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill will include all employees of judges, justices of the unified court system, and members of the legislature within the definition of a "public employee" or "employee."   JUSTIFICATION: Many acts of workplace misconduct, including sexual assault, are carried out by those who are in a position of power. Employees who are aware of such acts are often afraid to report such misconduct for fear that they will lose their jobs or face retaliation. This bill will ensure that employees who disclose violations of law or improper conduct to a governmental body will be protected from retaliation or disciplinary action.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately
