        S. 1630--A                          2
 
     1  the  delivery of an order of such products, on a third-party food deliv-
     2  ery platform without a valid agreement with the food service  establish-
     3  ment authorizing the inclusion of their products on such platform.
     4    (b)  An  agreement  executed in accordance with this section shall not

     7  independent contractor acting on behalf of the third-party food delivery
     8  service, or any  registered  agent  of  the  third-party  food  delivery
     9  service,  for  any damages or harm by an act or omission occurring after
    10  the food service establishment's product leaves the place of business of
    11  the food service establishment. To the extent an agreement contains such
    12  a provision, such provision shall be deemed void and unenforceable.
    13    (c) A food service establishment included on a third-party food deliv-

    21  delivery  platform  and  each  food  service establishment included on a
    22  third-party food  delivery  platform  shall  be  considered  a  separate
    23  violation.
    24    §  2.  This  act  shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it shall
    25  have become a law.
