Practice Management: NYS Laws Affecting Employers in 2020

Wed, January 08, 2020 11:51 AM | Babette Atkins (Administrator)
  • As of December 31, 2019, the minimum wage increases across New York State, and more employees will be eligible to receive overtime pay because the salary threshold for exempt employees also increases. Be sure to update your state and federal labor law posters!

  • Effective January 1, employees taking Paid Family Leave will receive 60% of their average weekly wage and the employees’ contribution increases to 0.270% of gross wages each pay period, up to a max of $196.72 for the year. More information and resources for employers can be found here.

  • On January 6, a statewide ban on salary history inquiries takes effect. The new law prohibits all employers - both public and private - from asking prospective or current employees about their salary history and compensation.

  • By January 7, employee handbooks must include a notice of employees' rights and remedies under a 2019 law that prohibits employment discrimination based on an employee or dependent’s reproductive health decision-making. For more information about the new laws related to workplace discrimination, harassment, and protected classes, click here.
