The New Jersey Assembly Labor Committee has unanimously passed an amendment to the state’s wage notification requirements. Previously, employers were only required to provide employees with a statement of deductions from wages for each pay period. Under the new amendment, both public and private employers must provide each employee with a pay statement detailing several items, including deductions, gross wages, net wages, rate of pay, and the number of hours worked. The purpose of the bill is to provide employees with “the ability to determine whether their wages are being properly calculated”. Employers should review the new amendment and make any necessary adjustments to their pay statements.
