Employment, Labor and Benefits Alert: New York Employers Should Begin Issuing Offer Letters to All New Hires To Comply with Amended Provisions of the New York Labor Law


Effective on October 26, 2009, New York employers will be obligated to notify new employees, in writing, about certain terms and conditions of employment, and to obtain an employee’s written acknowledgement confirming his or her receipt of this information. Employers that do not comply with the new law are subject to monetary penalties. As a practical matter, employers would be well-served by addressing these terms and conditions of employment at the outset of the relationship, to avoid future disagreements with employees.
