NYC commuter benefits law takes effect Jan. 1
from Fox Rothchild
On January 1, New York City’s Commuter Benefits Law takes effect. Under the law, private employers with 20 or more full-time, non-union employees in New York City must offer covered employees the opportunity to enroll in commuter benefits programs to pay for their mass transit costs with pre-tax earnings. Temp agencies are covered by the law and are considered the employer of each full-time employee they place in another organization. Thus, temp agencies that place 20 or more full-time employees in New York City must offer those employees transportation benefits.
