This information is important for all employers to know.
Effective April 9th 2011 Section 195.1 of the Labor Law, requires all employers, other than government agencies, to give employees at the time of hire (before work is performed) and on or before February 1 of each year, notice to the following:
- the employee’s rate or rates of pay
- the overtime rate of pay, if the employee is subject to overtime regulations
- the basis of wage payment (per hour, per shift, per week, piece rate, commission, etc.)
- any allowances the employer intends to claim as part of the minimum wage including tip, meal, and lodging allowances
- the regular pay day
- the employer’s name and any names under which the employer does business (DBA)
- the physical address of the employer’s main office or principal place of business and, if different, the employer’s mailing address
- the employer’s telephone number
Please read the LS-52 Guidelines for Written Notice of Rates of Pay and Regular Payday for more information relating to the changes in existing law under the Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA).
Note: Temporary help firms have specialized guidelines and notice forms, since their employees’ rates of pay can vary with each assignment.
