Syracuse — Private employers would no longer have to provide annual pay notices to workers under a bill that passed the New York Senate this afternoon.
The repeal would change a part of the Wage Theft Prevention Act, a law passed last year to strengthen punishments for bosses with shoddy pay practices. As part of that, the law required all businesses to notify workers of their pay — information often found on pay stubs — once a year or face fines.
The change, which passed 34-23 today, would eliminate that annual notification. Sen. John DeFrancisco, R-Syracuse, sponsored the bill.
