TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend chapter 695 of the laws of 1994 amending the civil service law relating to injunctive relief in improper practice cases, in relation to extending the effectiveness of provisions contained therein
PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL : This bill intends to continue to provide for an expedited method to resolve improper labor practice issues.
SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS : This bill would extend the provisions relating to injunctive relief from June 30, 2009 to June 30, 2011.
EFFECTS OF PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER : This bill would extend the applicability of injunctive relief in public employment improper practice cases for two years.
