Labor and Employment: Legislation Will End Employers’ Annual Wage-Notice Scramble (8/14)


On June 19, 2014, New York Assembly and Senate passed legislation eliminating a Wage Theft Prevention Act requirement that employers must provide wage notices to all employees by Feb. 1 each year.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo was expected to sign the bill, making 2014 the last year employers had to provide the notice. This is certainly a welcome development for employers in New York, that found the annual wage notice requirement to be extremely burdensome and costly.
