In part one of this post, we began discussing New York state’s Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA).
As we noted, the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) still sets overall wage-and-hour standards that apply across the nation. But in New York, the WTPA is also in play.
In this part of the post, we will take note of WTPA protections regarding payroll records and employees’ wage statements. We will also put these issues in the context of our firm’s practice on wage-and-hour disputes.
