AN ACT to amend the labor law, in relation to  increased  penalties  for

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 1 of section 195 of the  labor
law,  as  amended by chapter 564 of the laws of 2010, is amended to read
as follows:
  (a) provide his or her employees, in writing in  English  and  in  the
language  identified  by  each  employee as the primary language of such
employee, at the time of hiring[, and on or  before  February  first  of
each  subsequent year of the employee's employment with the employer], a
notice containing the following information: the rate or  rates  of  pay
and  basis  thereof, whether paid by the hour, shift, day, week, salary,
piece, commission, or other; allowances, if any, claimed as part of  the
minimum  wage,  including  tip, meal, or lodging allowances; the regular
pay day designated by  the  employer  in  accordance  with  section  one
hundred ninety-one of this article; the name of the employer; any "doing
business  as"  names  used  by the employer; the physical address of the
employer's main office or principal place of  business,  and  a  mailing
address  if  different;  the telephone number of the employer; plus such
other information as the commissioner deems material and necessary. Each
time the employer provides such notice  to  an  employee,  the  employer
shall  obtain  from the employee a signed and dated written acknowledge-
ment, in English and in the primary language of the employee, of receipt
of this notice, which the employer shall preserve and maintain  for  six
years. Such acknowledgement shall include an affirmation by the employee
that  the  employee accurately identified his or her primary language to

employee  pursuant to this subdivision was in the language so identified
