As expected, the New York State Department of Labor (DOL) recently appealed the decision of the New York Industrial Board of Appeals invalidating the DOL regulations concerning employers who use direct deposit or payroll debit cards to pay employees. The regulations, which were scheduled to take effect on March 7, 2017, were invalidated in February 2016. We reported on that decision here. We will continue to provide updates here as this case moves forward; but for now, the law on this issue remains in flux. Stay tuned!
