Advantage Payroll NYS Labor Services

A law passed in 2011 provides enhanced protection to workers in New York State. This law, the Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA), took effect on April 9, 2011.
The existing law already required employers to provide notice to employees of their wage rates at the time of hire and any time a change is made to their rate. Now, the WTPA requires employers to give a written notice of the following to each new hire and all employees by February 1 each year:

  • The employee’s rate or rates of pay and the regular payday
  • 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 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
*Employers must provide the notice in English and the employee’s primary language.
