Support

SUBJECT:

NYS Wage Theft Protection Act

 

DATE:

November 29, 2010

 

This fifteen page bill, the Wage Theft Protection Act, would expand many current and longstanding employer obligations under the state's labor law and add new penalties for employers. The Business Council opposes enactment of this proposal.

For these reasons, The Business Council opposes this legislation and strongly urges that it not be enacted by the New York State Legislature.
