NEW YORK - ANNUAL WAGE STATEMENTS NO LONGER REQUIRED

From the Department of Labor website:

"On December 29, 2014, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed a bill eliminating the requirement that before February 1 of each year, employers notify and receive written acknowledgement from every worker about their rate of pay, allowances, pay day, etc. According to the signing statement, legislative leaders and the Governor have agreed to a chapter amendment to make this change effective immediately. Accordingly, given the pending enactment of this chapter amendment, the Department will not require annual statements in 2015.

Please note, businesses are still required to notify employees as required at the time of hire. "
