A07572 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A7572
 
SPONSOR: Dinowitz
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil practice law and rules, in relation to arbitration awards in consumer and employment disputes   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would require arbitrators who decide consumer or employment- related disputes to set forth the basis for their awards.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 would amend section 7507 of the civil practice law and rules to require arbitrators who decide consumer or employment-related disputes to set forth the basis for their awards. Section 2 sets the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: It is well-settled that arbitrators are not required to explain or justify their awards. E.g. Colletti v. Mesh, 23 AD2d 245 (1st Dept), affd 17 NY2d 460 (1965). In recent years, there has been a proliferation of arbitration hearings in consumer and employment matters. It is particularly important for consumers and employees to know the basis for awards rendered in hearings in which they have participated. This bill does not purport to be a burden upon arbitrators. Or otherwise amelio- rate any of the benefits of arbitration, such as speed and efficiency of adjudication. Still, it is difficult, if not impossible for a losing arbitration participant to know whether any grounds exist to vacate the arbitration award pursuant to CPLR 7511 if the basis for the award remains unknown. This bill was modeled upon 11 NYCRR 65-4.5(s) which has worked well for many years in providing automobile insureds and insurers with the same basic information about arbitration awards in matters brought pursuant to Article 51 of the Insurance Law (no fault arbitrations).   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2017-2018 - A.6372 - Passed Assembly/ S.6225 - Referred to Judiciary 2015-2016 - A.10090-A - Referred to judiciary/ S.8040 - Referred to Judiciary   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: This bill shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it shall become law.

        Introduced by M. of A. DINOWITZ, WEINSTEIN, GOTTFRIED, SEAWRIGHT -- read
          once and referred to the Committee on Judiciary
 
        AN  ACT  to amend the civil practice law and rules, in relation to arbi-
          tration awards in consumer and employment disputes
 
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section  1.  Section  7507  of  the  civil  practice law and rules, as
     2  amended by chapter 952 of the laws  of  1981,  is  amended  to  read  as
     3  follows:
     4    § 7507. Award; form; time; delivery. (a) Except as provided in section
     5  7508, the award shall be in writing, signed and affirmed by the arbitra-
     6  tor making it within the time fixed by the agreement, or, if the time is
     7  not fixed, within such time as the court orders.
     8    (b)  In  a  matter  involving  a consumer dispute, pursuant to section
     9  three hundred ninety-nine-c of the general business law, or  an  employ-
    10  ment  dispute  between  an  employer and employee, as defined in section
    11  three of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (29 U.S.C. §  203),  where
    12  arbitration  was  held pursuant to a contract, the award shall state the
    13  issues in dispute and shall contain the arbitrator's  findings  of  fact
    14  and  conclusions  of  law.  Such  award  shall contain a decision on all
    15  issues submitted to the arbitrator.  The provisions of this  subdivision
    16  shall  not  apply  to agreements negotiated with any labor union through
    17  collective bargaining.
    18    (c) The parties may in writing extend the time either before or  after
    19  its  expiration. A party waives the objection that an award was not made
    20  within the time required unless he or she  notifies  the  arbitrator  in
    21  writing  of  his  or her objection prior to the delivery of the award to
    22  him or her.
    23    (d) The arbitrator shall deliver a copy of the award to each party  in
    24  the  manner  provided  in the agreement, or, if no provision is so made,
    25  personally or by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested.
    26    § 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after
    27  it shall have become a law.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
