New York Requires Employer-Written Notifications and Additional Recordkeeping for New Hires


A recent amendment to Section 195 of the New York Labor Law requires an employer to give written notice to a newly hired employee of the employee's rate of pay and regular payday designated by the employer. The amendment further requires an employer to give each newly hired employee that is eligible for overtime pay by law or regulation written notice of such employee's overtime wage rate. This new law applies to all new employees hired on or after October 26, 2009.

Additionally, an employer is required at the time of hiring to obtain from a new employee a written acknowledgement of the employee's receipt of the required written notice.
