Full Bill Text

A 1142 would amend current labor law in New York to prohibit discrimination based on an employee’s or a dependent’s reproductive health decision making. Employers would be prohibited from accessing an employee’s personal information regarding their reproductive health decision making, including, but not limited to, the decision to use or access a particular drug, device or medical service without the employee’s prior informed affirmative written consent.

In addition, employers would not be able to discriminate against an employee with respect to compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges or employment because of an employee’s reproductive health decision making.

An employee may bring a civil action against an employer alleged to have violated this law.


Companion to S 2709.
