NYS Business Council Calls for Wage Theft Prevention Act Reform

Posted July 31, 2014

Reform of Cumbersome Wage Theft Law Awaits Governor's Decision

Approved by strong, bipartisan majorities in both the NYS Senate and Assembly, legislation to reform the so-called Wage Theft Prevention Act was, at press time (for the Chamber's August newsletter), on Governor Cuomo's desk, awaiting his signature.

The Chemung County Chamber, in concert with the NYS Business Council and like organizations around the State, has called for reform of this unnecessary and bothersome law which does nothing but impose additional and redundant paperwork on employers. The Chamber participated in a recent push to urge the Governor to sign the legislation and demonstrate support for business, with no apparent political risk.

While the next compliance date for the law is not until the end of the calendar year, finalizing the reform makes sense now, before primaries and Election Day command Albany's attention. For annotated copies of the legislation and The Business Council's support letter, please CLICK HERE.
