The New York State Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA) has an annual February 1 deadline requirement for all employers to provide mandatory pay notices to all of their employees, including union and clerical.

The WTPA requires employers to give a written notice to each new hire and to all employees by February 1st each year.

The notice must include: rate or rates of pay, including overtime rate of pay (if it applies); how the employee is paid: by the hour, shift, day, week, commission, etc.; regular payday; official name of the employer and any other names used for business (DBA); address and phone number of the employer's main office or principal location; and allowances taken as part of the minimum wage (tip, meal and lodging deductions).
