Legislative Update


During the final days of legislative session, both the Senate and Assembly passed legislation that repeals the annual pay notice requirement for employers in New York State; increases employer fines and penalties for wage and hour violations; and specifies some department of labor administrative actions (S.5885-B/A.8106-C). The bill will now go to the governor for his approval or veto. Read The Business Council’s support memo for the bill here.
