The New York State Department of Labor Releases New York Wage Theft Prevention Act Pay Notice Templates and Other Guidance


Last December we alerted you to the passage of the New York Wage Theft Prevention Act, which goes into effect this Saturday, April 9, 2011. That law amends the New York Labor Law by, among other things, requiring employers to (1) include additional information on pay notices provided to new hires, (2) provide pay notices to existing employees annually, (3) provide a pay notice to an existing employee if information on the previous pay notice changes and the employee’s next earnings statement would not reflect that information, and (4) retrieve acknowledgments from employees regarding receipt of the pay notices. Read our prior alert about the New York Wage Theft Prevention Act.
