(a) The commissioner shall determine the effective date of such order, which date shall be not less than ninety days after the date of its promulgation. The order shall set forth the type or types of manufacturing which are prohibited after its effective date, and shall contain such terms and conditions as the commissioner may deem necessary to carry out the purpose and policy of this act and to safeguard its provisions. The commissioner may in such order permit limited distribution of industrial home work under such terms or conditions as are hereinafter prescribed by subsection (b) of this section, to any person if he finds (1) That such person is unable to adjust to factory employment because of old age or physical or mental deficiency or disability, or is unable to leave the home because his services are essential to care for an invalid in the home; and (2) That such limited distribution is not inconsistent with the purpose and policy of this act.
(b) Industrial home work shall be performed under subsection (a) of this section only where (1) the employer maintains a factory or business in this State in which persons are employed on operations which are the same or similar to the home work operations permitted and, provided further, that the commissioner shall determine the ratio, which shall not exceed one-third, of the number of home workers engaged by an employer to the number of persons employed by said employer in his factory or business, said determination to be based on conditions of employment, maintenance of existing labor standards and other factors involving the preservation of the best interests of this State; (2) on any operation, a home worker is paid at least the same rate as that paid to workers on the same or similar operations in the factory or business; and (3) the employer and home worker comply with such other terms or conditions as the commissioner may by rule or regulation prescribe to safeguard the health and welfare of home workers and the wages and working conditions of factory workers, and to effectuate the purpose of this section.
