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.   Not available 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 expand the Prevailing Wage Law to cover additional developers and City development projects. Specifically, the proposed bill would amend the definition of “City development project” to remove the exemption for affordable housing projects and add an exemption for certain supportive housing projects. The bill would also amend the definition of “covered developer” to remove the exemption for not-for-profit developers of residential projects.   Not available Not available

The report, which is currently required to be sent to the Comptroller, Public Advocate and Speaker of the Council, would also be distributed to every Council Member.   Not available Not available
