The New York Wage Theft Prevention Act requires employers to provide annual wage notices to all employees beginning in 2014 no later than Feb. 1. The notice must include the following:
The notice also must be provided in the employee’s primary language, as identified by the employee, and if Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Creole, Polish, or Russian, through a translated notice.
In addition to annual notices, employers must provide similar wage notices at the time of hiring and within seven days of a change in any of the data on the notice if not included on the employee’s pay stub.
Templates of English and non-English forms and a link to a FAQs page are available on the New York State Department of Labor’s website.
