Operating in New York? What you need to know about Wage Theft Prevention Act
With all the wage and hour class action litigation throughout the country, most employers with operations in a variety of states cannot help but be aware that careful compliance in this area is very important — and mistakes ever more costly. In addition to the recent enforcement initiatives announced by the U.S. Department of Labor and the many private lawsuits spreading like wildfire, an increasing number of states now are getting in on the act — in many cases, adopting legislation that provides additional ammunition for private litigants. New York's recent Wage Theft Prevention Act is one such law. If you have not already, prudent employers with operations in New York should take notice.
