Employment-First Annual Notice To Employees Required By The Wage Theft Protection Act Is Due By February 1

New York State’s Wage Theft Protection Act (the “Act”) requires private employers to provide to each employee, who works in New York State, a notice at time of hire and once each year pertaining to the employee’s pay and related matters. The Act applies to employees hired after April 8, 2011. The first annual notice must be provided during the period starting on January 1, 2012, and ending on February 1, 2012.

I have written an article on the annual notice requirement. Let me know if you would like a copy by giving me a call (516-307-1550) or using the CONTACT US feature on the website.
