From the Schwartz Law Firm blog:

"An amendment to a New York State Labor Law went into effect on October 26, 2009. Employers are now required to give newly-hired workers written notice of the rate at which they will be paid and their regular payday. (New York’s Labor Law Sec. 195.1) The new law is intended to eliminate misunderstandings and pay disputes, and to resolve them if they occur.

The notice must be provided on a form available from the New York State Department of Labor, and must be given to new employees before they do any work. The written notice must also include the employee’s overtime rate of pay, if they qualify for overtime. The employer must have the new employee sign a statement saying that the employee has received the written notice. The signed statement must be kept by the employer for six years."

The required Notice and Acknowledgment to be given and signed by employees can be found by clicking on the title above.
