Despite lawsuit to stop farm labor rights law, changes will take hold on Wednesday

A lawsuit is coming as part of an effort to stop a farm labor rights law signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2019.

The Auburn Citizen reports that a legal challenge is being brought by a coalition of farm groups including the Northeast Dairy Producers Association and New York State Vegetable Growers Association, and aims to stall the legislation set to take effect on January 1st.

A point of contention is the ‘ambiguities’ of the law, according to The Citizen’s reporting. Those arguing on behalf of farmers say that those issues need to be resolved before a law should be implemented.

There are other concerns, but it’s unlikely any action is taken before the law takes effect.
