Senate Bill 1791 amends the Wage Payment Law (WPL) to require employers of New Jersey employees to provide additional information on wage statements. Where the WPL previously required employers to provide a statement of deductions only, the amended law requires private and public employers of more than ten employees to include the following information on wage statements:

  • Rate of pay
  • Gross wages
  • Net wages
  • Number of hours worked during the pay period (if relevant to wage calculation)

Wage statements may be distributed electronically, unless an employee requests to receive their wage statements on paper.

Action Items

  1. Review wage statements provided to employees to ensure the required information is included.
