A reminder for New York employers: If you haven’t already completed the Notice of Wage Payment forms required under the New York Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA), time is running out. The law, which took effect on April 9, 2011, requires covered employers to give written notice of wage rates to all new hires at the time of hire and annually to all employees by February 1. This year is the first year in which the annual notice has been required.
To download compliant forms in several languages for free, go to the New York Department of Labor’s website.
More information about the Act can be found in this previous Human Resources News Alert.
