Under New York Labor Law (Section 195), employers are required to advise employees of their rate of pay and regular pay day. This law recently has been amended, effective October 26, 2009, to require written notice be provided to newly hired employees setting forth their rate of pay, their regular pay day, and for employees who are eligible for overtime, their regular hourly rate and overtime rate of pay. 

In addition, employers must obtain a written acknowledgment from each employee of receipt of this notice, which must comply with any requirements established by the Commissioner of Labor. To date, the Commissioner of Labor has yet to provide any requirements or a sample acknowledgment form.
