UPDATE: Bill Eliminating New York's Annual Wage Notice Requirement Takes Effect

On February 27, 2015, 60 days after Governor Cuomo signed it, a bill (A08106C / S05885-B) became effective that amends the New York Wage Theft Prevention Act to eliminate the annual wage notice requirement.  This means that moving forward, employers do not have to distribute annual wage notices to all employees.

 

The newly-effective law also increases penalties for certain violations of the New York wage law.  More details on these changes can be found in our previous post by clicking here.  Employers should evaluate any revisions that might be needed to their practices in light of this amendment.
