Preparing for the Wage Theft Act – What Contractors Need to Know Now
Peckar & Abramson will host a webinar on Wednesday, December 15 from 12:00 – 1:15pm ET to discuss the recently enacted Construction Industry Wage Theft Act which takes effect January 4, 2022. This law imposes strict liability upon a contractor for the violations of its subcontractors for wage and benefit underpayments, misclassification of employees as independent contractors and penalties for failure to provide appropriate wage notices at the time of hire and with each paycheck. With this new law, construction industry contractors are expected to increasingly become the target of class action claims brought by their direct employees as well as the employees of their subcontractors.
The webinar will include a review of New York State labor laws relating to payment of wages and benefits and a discussion of compliance strategies for mitigating risk. To register, click here
