Senate Passes Repeal Of Wage Notification

2

The Republican-led Senate today passed legislation to repeal the notification provisions of the Wage Theft Prevention Act.

Gannett’s Albany Bureau reported yesterday about the repeal effort. The act requires every private employer to provide workers a document verifying their salaries and basic information each year.

“Other than costing businesses to lose countless hours and waste millions of dollars, this mandate has done nothing to help employees or create new jobs,” Sen. John DeFrancisco, R-Syracuse, who sponsored the bill, said in a statement. “We have to eliminate mandates like this to make New York more competitive so businesses can focus on growing and creating jobs rather than keeping track of more paper and paying fines if they don’t.”

Businesses hailed the bill’s passage today. It passed 34-23. The measure now heads to the Democratic-led Assembly.

  2. I do the reporting for my company. When I first heard of this I thought, what a joke. These people are not serious? This is the biggest waste of time and money and is certainly more than duplication of effort. companies report wages to the IRS, the state, social security, and now the state again. Most people I have worked with make sure they are properly paid based on their arrangement with the company. I dare say the people, who you would think are the least likely to question, will not hesitate to ask the employer for justification, if the check is short one penny. I don’t think “Big Brother” has to worry about the little guy.
