On April, 24, 2017, the New York State Department of Labor (“NYSDOL”) has filed an appeal to the February 16, 2017 decision
by the New York State Industrial Board of Appeals (“Board”). The Board’s ruling held that the NYSDOL’s regulations regarding employer payments via payroll debit cards and direct deposit were invalid, thereby revoking the regulations, which were set to become effective
on March 7, 2017. While the regulations remain ineffective, we will continue to provide updates on New York’s payroll debit card and direct deposit rules.
