An amendment to Section 195(1) of the New York
The amendment, which took effect at the end of October, requires providing the notice “at the time of their hiring.” Employers must obtain a written acknowledgment from employees indicating they received the notice.
The amendment applies to all employees hired on or after Oct. 26, 2009.
The New York Legislature passed the new requirement to help employees compute the overtime pay they can expect to receive.
The amendment means employers will have to determine in advance whether a particular employee will be eligible for overtime.
