Int 0108-2018 *Brad S. Lander  Regulating covenants not to compete for freelance workers.IntroductionThe use of non-compete agreements in contracts for freelance work, especially in the fashion industry, can lead to unreasonable restrictions on freelancers being able to find new work. This bill would prohibit persons from requiring freelance workers to enter into non-compete agreements unless the hiring party agrees to compensate the freelance worker during any period in which a non-compete agreement would restrict the freelancer from seeking other work. This bill would also create a private right of action allowing freelancers to seek a declaratory judgment finding a non-compete agreement void and grant the Office of Labor Standards enforcement authority. The Corporation Counsel would also be able to investigate and sue hiring parties who exhibit a pattern or practice of violations in this case.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available

Int 1321-2019 *Rafael L. Espinal, Jr. Proposed Int. No. 1321-AExpanding the prevailing wage law for building service employees at city development projects.IntroductionLocal Law 27 of 2012 (the “Prevailing Wage Law”) requires payment of prevailing wages to building service employees in buildings where a private developer receives at least $1,000,000 in discretionary financial assistance from the City or a City economic development entity for a City development project. The proposed bill would cover additional developers and projects by removing the current exemption in the Prevailing Wage Law for affordable housing projects and not-for-profit developers of residential projects. Accordingly, building service workers in most residential projects receiving financial assistance of at least $1,000,000 for new construction or preservation would be required to be paid the prevailing wage. The bill exempts smaller residential projects with fewer than 120 units, certain supportive housing projects, deeply affordable preservation projects and NYCHA projects financed through the federal Rental Assistance Demonstration program.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
