The Wage Theft Prevention Act (WTPA) process must be completed in accordance with New York State Labor Law Section 195(1) for all employees at the University of Rochester. This process includes the notice and acknowledgement of the employee’s wage rate and designated payday, hourly rate, plus overtime, and the confirmation by the employee of his or her primary language to the employer. The employer is required to notify the employee of their wage rate, overtime rate, and designated pay day in their primary language, if their primary language is one of the following: Chinese, Haitian Creole, Korean, Polish, Russian, or Spanish.
Students and employers will be notified via email to complete the WTPA requirements. Students will need to log into JobLink and complete the necessary forms. If a student’s primary language is not English, departments must complete a paper WTPA with the student and send it to our office. These forms can be found in the Forms an Information on the JobLink homepage.
