Explanation

The amendment strikes section 5, which eliminates the costs of $0 - $169, 720 for the Department of Labor, and $0-$40, 235 for fringe benefits, for additional staff to handle complaints. Additionally, the amendment eliminates the civil penalties, thereby eliminating the anticipated revenue gain from such penalties.

1 The fringe benefit costs for most state employees are budgeted centrally in accounts administered by the Comptroller. The estimated non-pension fringe benefit cost associated with personnel changes is 23.76% of payroll in FY 12 and FY 13. In addition, there could be an impact to potential liability for the applicable state pension funds.
