FLSA Changes and Wage Theft Protection Act Notices

bigstock--140800931Changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) will be put into place on December 1, 2016, which may cause employers to reclassify workers whose salaries do not meet the new thresholds set by the Department of Labor. New York employers should be advised that any reclassification of workers will result in the need to distribute new Wage Theft Prevention Act notices to employees, which should include information on “how the employee will be paid…, the regular pay day, and information regarding the employer.” Additionally, employers are required to collect “a signed acknowledgement from the employee, and must keep that signed acknowledgement on record for six years”.
