Are you prepared to comply with Section 195 of the New York Labor Law?
To Comply, You MUST
Ask all employees to identify their primary language.
Provide employees a notice in English and their primary language (if the New York Department of Labor has translated a form into that language).
The notice must include the following:
The employee's rate or rates of pay
The overtime rate of pay, if the employee is subject to overtime regulations
The basis of wage payment (per hour, per shift, per week, piece rate, commission, etc.)
Any allowances the employer intends to claim as part of the minimum wage including tip, meal, and lodging allowances
The regular payday
The employer's name and any names under which the employer does business (DBA)
The physical address of the employer's main office or principal place of business and, if different, the employer's mailing address
The employer's telephone number
The notice must be acknowledged by the employee and maintained for at least six years.
Let HRTrain ease the weight of this new legal burden on NY employers.
How Can We Help?
Just send us your spreadsheet with information about your employees.
We will ask them to identify their primary language and generate an online notice which they can acknowledge and print.
We will maintain a pdf version of this acknowledged notice for six years.
We will send you a pdf copy of all such notices on February 1.
We will send e-mails to all employees asking them to acknowledge the form.
We will send any bulk reminder e-mail that you want us to send to help ensure 100% compliance. These e-mails will look like they are coming from your organization and employees can reply directly to you.
