About this Program

The recent changes to New York State Wage & Hour Laws have given employers a greater incentive to be intimately familiar with its employment practices – there have been an increasing number of lawsuits, an expansion of civil and criminal penalties for non-compliance, and stronger enforcement by both federal and state labor agencies. Join New York Labor and Employment attorneys Evan White and Joseph Harris for this discussion on the intricacies of New York’s new Wage and Hour laws. They cover the essential changes such as payment and overtime practices, meal breaks, wage deductions, and uniform pay. They also shed light on the new employer obligations under New York State’s Wage Theft Prevention Act as well as the updated regulations for the hospitality industry. Their conclusion ends with practical advice that will help employers avoid violations in their labor practices.

II.   Wage & Hour Basics
III.  Other NYS Wage & Hour Essentials
