  • On December 29, 2014, Governor Cuomo signed a bill amending the New York Wage Theft Protection Act (the “WTPA”) to, among other things, eliminate the requirement that New York State employers provide annual wage rate notices to existing employees between January 1 and February 1 of each year. Although this part of the bill, like its other key provisions, does not formally take effect until February 27, 2015, the New York State Department of Labor (“DOL”) has announced on its website that New York employers need not provide annual wage rate notices in 2015.
