In New York State, all employers, within 10 days of your hire, must provide you with a written notice regarding the wages you will be earning. To meet this requirement, New York State has created forms like the one above for employers to give to all of their employees. Should your employer fail to give such a written notice, you may be able to sue them and collect a penalty of $50/work day, up to a maximum of $5,000.00.
Specifically, this written notice must list your employer information, pay rate, pay day, pay frequency, applicable overtime rate, and various other important information concerning the term of your employment. Further, the written notice you receive must provide this information in your primary language, and you must sign the form to acknowledge that it was received in your language. The primary purpose of this form is to confirm the terms of your employment in writing and to tell you who you can sue if these terms are not followed.
Keep in mind, employers are not required to use this form. Any written notice that conveys the same information above will be sufficient to meet any employer's obligation. But, if this form does not look familiar, you may have a claim against your employer.
