BILL NUMBER:S7790 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to authoriz- ing and regulating the use of payroll cards PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The bill would clarify and update New York labor law about the proper use of payroll cards. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends section 190 of the Labor Law by adding definitions, including a definition of "payroll card." Section 2 amends section 192 of the Labor Law to provide that employers may pay employee wages in the form of cash, a paper check, direct depos- it or via payroll cards. But an employer may not pay wages by payroll card unless the employer also offers the employee the option of paper check and direct deposit. An employee at any time may withdraw consent to be paid via direct deposit or payroll card, and an employer must cease to pay in that manner within two pay periods of the notification. The employer must maintain written authorizations for a set period. Section 3 amends the Labor Law by adding sections 192-a, 192-b and 192-c, which provides for the payment of wages using payroll cards.
