This seminar provides an in-depth review of the New York Wage Theft Prevention Act (“WTPA”) and what New York employers need to know to ensure compliance. 


Employment law experts Greg Reilly and Adam Guttell from the firm of Martin Clearwater & Bell LLP walk through the WTPA’s legal obligations, penalties, and those issues that remain undecided. They also review the manner in which this law affects New York employers as a practical matter in both the workplace and the courtroom.  


In addition, the program examines the impact of recent changes to the WTPA’s notice requirements, as well as increased penalties associated with non-compliance, successor liability, and personal liability for individual business owners.

II.    Understand the history and goals of the WTPA

III.   Identify what employers are subject to the WTPA and how certain employers are affected differently

IV.   Explore recent changes to the WTPA

V.    Detail specifics so that employers can maintain compliance with the WTPA
