In the January and December 2011 Employment Law Insider Alerts we informed employers about amendments to the New York State Labor Law that require employers to provide written notice to all newly hired employees of 1) rate of pay, 2) regular paydays and 3) the overtime rate of pay, if applicable. Newly hired employees also are required to sign a statement acknowledging receipt of the written notice, and the statement is to be maintained by the employer for at least six years.
