<a >Changes in New York Labor Law Impact Employers.</A>
New York employers should be aware of recent amendments to New York’s Labor Law that may require them to revise their employment policies and procedures. One significant amendment, which takes effect October 16, 2007, requires employers to put in writing the terms of employment for commissioned salespeople or risk an adverse presumption in any wage action brought against the employer. See Section 191 of the New York Labor Law. This change in the state labor law is part of an effort to address difficulties the New York Department of Labor has experienced in investigating wage payment claims for commissions in the absence of a written agreement detailing the terms of employment.
