Under New York’s Wage Theft Prevention Act, employers are required to report wage rates to all of their employees each year and to new employees as they join the company. The new law dictates that employers must use a set of templates that apply to six different wage classifications and provide notice in several languages for non-native English speaking employees. Companies that fail to comply with the new regulations face hefty fines and potential litigation. While this new law aims to give greater protection to the state’s private sector employees, navigating its specific requirements can be confusing for employers.

During “New York’s New Wage Reporting Requirements – Keys to Compliance,” TALX payroll experts will explain the new wage reporting law and what it means for private sector employers in New York. They will also outline similar laws and bills in California and Hawaii and detail the specific requirements needed for compliance in those states. Attendees will hear about the information New York notices must include, how to choose the proper notice template, how to accommodate employees’ choice of primary language, and which points need to be included in the acknowledgement and signed by the employee. With help from TALX experts, session participants will learn the retention requirements for acknowledgement and understand the keys to managing the process electronically.

TALX encourages payroll, HR and tax personnel who are concerned about the impact of this new law and want to learn how they can comply with its regulations attend this hour-long educational session.

“New York’s New Wage Reporting Requirements – Keys to Compliance” is part of the ongoing series of webinars presented by TALX.
