MFY Urges NYS Department of Labor to Take Strong Action against Payroll Card Abuse

In written testimony to the NYS Department of Labor, MFY supports rule changes that would create strong worker protections and rein in abusive practices that are rampant in the payroll card industry. MFY supports provisions prohibiting employers from forcing workers to accept payroll cards, and banning high and hidden fees to access wages, and proposes minor changes to the proposed rules to further protect workers.
