By decision dated April 8, 2014, a New York State Supreme Court judge voided rules implementing the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission’s (TLC) Taxi Driver Healthcare Service Fund (“Fund”). The City is appealing this decision to the New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division and remains committed to making healthcare and disability coverage more accessible to taxi drivers.
In deference to the lower court’s decision, the TLC hereby instructs taxicab medallion owners to discontinue their withholding of a six (6) cents per-ride fee while the City’s appeal is pending before the Appellate Division.
The TLC further advises medallion owners that, in the event that the Appellate Division reverses the lower Court's order, taxicab medallion owners may be obligated to pay to the Fund any and all amounts collected from drivers but not yet paid over to the Fund.
