Int 2333-2021 *Mark Gjonaj   Prohibiting the inclusion of a food service establishment's products on a third-party food delivery platform without a written agreement authorizing such inclusion, and to provide penalties.IntroductionThis bill would prohibit third-party food delivery services – defined in this bill as any website, mobile application or other internet service that sells and offers delivery or pickup of food and beverages from a food service establishment owned by another entity – from listing food service establishments on their application or website and making deliveries from such establishments, without a written agreement between the delivery service and the establishment. It would also prohibit the delivery services from requiring the establishments, in these written agreements, to indemnify the delivery service or their independent contractors or agents for certain damage that occurs after food or beverages leave the establishment. Violations of this bill would be subject to a civil penalty of not more than $500 per day per establishment with respect to which a violation was committed. The Commissioner of the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection would be required to conduct outreach about the requirements of this bill.   Action details Not available
Int 2335-2021 *Mark Gjonaj   Requiring third-party food delivery services to provide a description of the telephone numbers listed in connection with food service establishments.IntroductionSome third-party food delivery services generate and advertise unique telephone numbers for the food service establishments with which they contract, and collect a fee when customers use that unique telephone number for food or beverage orders from the establishments. This bill would require these services, if listing any telephone number for an establishment, to include that establishment’s direct telephone number, and if also including a unique telephone number, to provide a description of the telephone numbers. The description must identify each type of telephone number and any fees associated with their use. The Commissioner of the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection would be required to promulgate rules defining the content, size and location of the description.   Action details Not available

This bill would instead prohibit such charges from the anticipated end date of those conditions until February 17, 2022.   Action details Not available
