Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

The New York City Commission on Human Rights (the “Commission”) is proposing to amend its rules to clarify exceptions to the general prohibition on preemployment testing for tetrahydrocannabinols or marijuana.

These proposed rules would amend title 47 of the Rules of the City of New York to explain covered entities’ obligations under the City Human Rights Law.

The Commission’s authority for these rules is found in sections 905(e)(9) and 1043 of the New York City Charter and section 8-107(31) of the Administrative Code.

STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE

 

The Commissioner of the New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA) in accordance with New York State Social Services Law §§56 and 61(1), and Administrative Code of the City of New York §21-128(h) amends Title 68 of the Rules of the City of New York.

 

HRA’s HIV/AIDS Services Administration (HASA, formerly DASIS) provides access to benefits and services, and otherwise ensures the provision of benefits and services, to New York City residents living with clinical/symptomatic HIV illness or with AIDS. The New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute determines whether a person is living with clinical/symptomatic HIV illness. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention determines, based on established definitions, whether a person is living with AIDS.

 

Under federal and state law, public assistance recipients are required to participate in work programs unless specifically exempt. Medically eligible clients of the HASA program are generally exempt from participating in the work program because they are “deemed to be disabled” or “work limited” under New York State Social Services Law § 332-b(1)(b). However, under New York State Social Services §§ 331 and 336 et. seq., other non-exempt adult members of the HASA public assistance household are required to comply with the work requirements unless they fall into a statutorily prescribed exemption to the work program.

 

HRA/HASA amends Chapter 5 of Title 68 of the Rules of the City of New York to provide employment activities and opportunities to those adults (known as Associated Case Members – ACM). The ACM employment rule creates a process for the provision of employment opportunities for eligible ACMs residing in a HASA household. To foster their long-term self-sufficiency, all ACMs will be assessed for employability and those determined to be eligible will be linked to existing HRA employment services. If the ACM refuses or fails without good cause to cooperate with the process or to comply with the work requirements, the household will, under federal, state, or local law, be subject to a pro-rated reduction of the household’s cash assistance benefits.

 

The rule amendment also makes technical changes to reflect the change in name from DASIS to HASA.
