Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA) - NEW YORK STATE

more+
less-

As you may know, we audit for compliance with respect to the new TILA loan originator compensation rule. In the course of doing such audits for New York companies, we look for compliance with the Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA) and its implementing regulations. These WTPA requirements are administratively cumbersome.

The Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA) annual notice requirement is effective as of January 1, 2012 and must be complied with by February 1, 2012. Thus, the implementation period is exceedingly short.

If you are a New York company or have affiliates and branches in New York or own companies in New York, you must comply with the current notification requirement of the WTPA.

Please be sure to discuss this matter with your firm's accountant or financial adviser. Be prepared to implement the WTPA procedures immediately.

Even if you are not a New York company or subject to this regulation, a review of the notification requirement provides a useful tool in implementing the TILA loan originator compensation rule.
