As we reported in last month’s issue, New York employers are now required to give all newly hired non-exempt employees written notice of their hourly rate, overtime pay rate, and regular payday, and all newly hired exempt employees written notice of their rate of pay and their regular payday.  While the New York State Department of Labor previously issued a required Notice and Acknowledgment form that it stated must be used for that purpose, a recent posting on the Department’s website now states that no particular form is required, and that employers may use their own forms, or use or adapt a form based on the sample available on the Department’s website.
