New York Wage And Theft Prevention Act Goes Into Effect This Week


Effective April 12, 2011, New York’s Wage and Theft Prevention Act (WTPA) goes into effect and imposes significant new notice and disclosure requirements on all New York employers. The new notice requirements will, among other things, require employers to clarify and detail to their employees the rate at which they are paid by the hour and for overtime. These notice requirements will soon be required for all employees at a workplace. Businesses with operations in New York should begin modifying their payroll practices immediately to ensure compliance with the WTPA.
