You had questions or comments?
I have a couple questions on this one. You and I discussed it and I discussed it with your staff. Though the bill actually says franchises but in many instances, there are non compete clauses that there is a contractual renumeration for my concern is that if this is interpreted differently, it will prevent corporations from negotiating with employees and entering into non compete clauses where there is substantial or sufficient renumeration. Number one you want to be listed as a sponsor on the amended very hob. Okay, number two the report against the bill. Todd, unmute. Okay. I'm sorry, Jeffery. Anything else? Right? Yeah, so I'm just I'm just concerned that this would prevent contractual relationships between employers and employees for non compete clauses, non revealing of confidential information that there is substantial or sufficient renumeration? And I haven't been even with your staff, that question still remains a little bit open. And I don't think we want to interfere with the contractual right of an employer or an employee to enter into agreements.
Well, I would certainly never want to interfere with a contractual right of an employee through two agreements. I'm not sure that this bill does that. I don't think but I'm going to turn it over to Marty.
Thank you, Mr. Chair. This bill doesn't prohibit all non compete clauses. This bill more narrowly provides that an employer can't restrict the person from applying to return to that business or to work in another business of the same company. Well, Marty,
under the law right now, New York State case law, isn't that against public policy, if they try at this point, if they're not being substantially renumerated for it?
Well, yeah, yes, there is some case law, that type the statute doesn't speak to it. So this is partly designed to put some of those restrictions in statute. But again, it's a narrower focus. It really just relates to the agreement that says that another company can't talk with you or can consider you. It would allow certain other non competes to continue.
I'm sorry, I thought Charles had something to say. Minority is going to I'm sorry, Jeffrey minority is going to be in the negative you can ask until I'm satisfied I'm comfortable that it doesn't prevent contractual relationships.
Well, first of all, you never have to apologize for being in the negative on a bill, even one of my bills, as long as you vote on the floor. Anybody else have anything to say? I put nobody else. Okay. The motion here is to report to rules, negative votes, minority in the negative for the reason I got in the negative, the bills reported. Thank you all very much for your patience. We zipped through that agenda. And I think now that we know we can do a 64 build agenda. I'm gonna push to the next agenda to be at least 100 bills. What do you think? Well, as long as I can get the bill passed, I don't care. Then we'll make it 99 bills. Okay. Come on. Give me one. Okay, thanks, everybody.
