As we addressed in our August 20, 2009 Client Alert‚ amendments to New York Labor Law §195 now obligate New York employers to notify new employees, in writing and at the time of hire, about certain terms and conditions of employment. Amended §195 also requires employers to obtain from each new employee a written acknowledgement confirming that he or she received the specified information. While amended §195 provides merely that such an acknowledgement must “conform to any requirements established by the [Labor] commissioner with regard to content and form,” the New York State Department of Labor (DOL) has broadly interpreted its authority and issued guidelines requiring employers to obtain new employees’ acknowledgements on its official form.
