The New York state legislature has passed the proposed amendment to N.Y. Labor Law § 193, broadening the scope of permissible deductions from wages under New York law to include, among other items, recoupment of overpayments based on clerical errors. The amended statute will also permit deductions to pay for certain common employer-provided benefits, such as gym memberships and daycare. As this legislation already has the Governor’s approval, the bill becomes law effective 60 days after Governor Cuomo’s signature. Somewhat unusually, the bill contains a sunset provision expressly stating that this law shall be “deemed repealed 3 years after [its] effective date.” Thus, New York employers (and the NY Dept. of Labor) will have a three-year trial period under this new deductions rule, with further legislative action required to make the change permanent.
