TIME SENSITIVE: New York State Publishes New Wage Notice Template for Immediate Use

October 1, 2020

Just in the nick of time, the New York State Department of Labor (NYDOL) released the new wage notice template to be used for employers subject to Home Care Worker Wage Parity. Employers must begin using the new wage notice (labeled the LS 62) beginning today, October 1, 2020. The LS 62 is available on the NYDOL website, linked here.

As we previously reported, the Home Health Care Worker Wage Parity Law (Wage Parity Law) and New York's Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA) were amended in April of this year. The amendments included new wage notice and wage statement obligations for employers subject to the Wage Parity Law. For more information please refer to our previous alert, Labor Law Amendments Mean New Wage Notices and Wage Statements for All Who Are Subject to Wage Parity.

While outside the scope of this alert, the WTPA amendments included similar new obligations for employers doing Prevailing Wage work, which took effect in July 2020. The revised wage notice for prevailing wage work (LS 58) can be found here. Please see our previous alert for more: ACT NOW. New Prevailing Wage Notification Requirements Are in Effect!

If you have questions regarding either new wage notice template, our Labor and Employment team is well-versed on the topic and happy to assist.
