A small group of NPRC members worked with Minnesota to clarify a few concerns regarding their new wage theft prevention act. FAQs to address concerns around the “basis of pay” and the “deductions and amount” requirements on the employee notice. FAQs 2 and 3 clarify that the “basis of pay” requirement on the wage statement has been updated to mean that employers are required to include on the earnings statement an employee’s “rate or rates of pay and the basis thereof, including whether the employee is paid by the hour, shift, day, week, salary, piece, commission or other method.”
Additionally, FAQ 34 clarifies that the amount of each deduction is not required on the notice to employees. This was a concern primarily because those amounts could change relatively frequently and necessitate a new notice each time.
