The Time is Now: Wage Theft Prevention Act Compliance Tips


The hot topic of discussion in all HR circles surrounds the first annual notice that is required to be provided to all employees this month under the Wage Theft Prevention Act. In prior Alerts, we informed you of the various provisions of the Act. In this Alert, we provide you once again with links to some of the most common forms as well as some new compliance pointers that you will not find elsewhere.

Initially, New York law requires that each year prior to February 1, every employer distribute to every employee a notice informing employees of certain information regarding their pay rate. This includes employees to whom forms already were given as "new hires" in 2011.

The most common forms are available by clicking on the following links: Form for Hourly Employees, Form for Exempt Employees, Form for Non-Exempt Employees Paid a Weekly Salary. Please see links below.

Please see full article below for more information.
