NY releases model templates for use of paycards, direct deposit

In connection with the adoption of regulations governing the Methods of Payment of Wages (see Payroll Management Guide Newsletter No. 1476, dated September 13, 2016), the New York Department of Labor has issued model templates for written notice and written consent. The regulations, which become effective March 7, 2017, created new notice and consent requirements that employers must meet in order to use certain methods of wage payment.

The templates are available for public comment and feedback until February 10, 2017. Comments and feedback can be sent to regulations@labor.ny.gov. After any changes from such comment and feedback are made, updated templates will be posted prior to the effective date of the rule, along with translations into additional languages specified during the rulemaking process.
