Recently, Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation amending New York Labor Law section 201. Prior to this, the law required only that employers post paper copies of NYS Department of Labor notices and posters in conspicuous places at the workplace.
Now, in addition to posting the notices, they also must be made available electronically through an employer’s website or by email. This change to the law is in response to the prevalence of work-from-home positions.
Furthermore, employers must notify their employees that the posted notices also are available electronically, and a non-compliant employer is subject to a fine for each offense.
