The District of Columbia’s Wage Theft Prevention Amendment Act of 2014, became effective on February 26, 2015. This law does cover household employers - families who employ a nanny, housekeeper, senior caregiver or other domestic service worker. The law requires in part that employers provide written wage notices to their DC employees. Household employers have until May 27, 2015 to satisfy this requirement with respect to their employees who were employed as of the Act’s effective date of February 26, 2015.
HomeWork Solutions has prepared simplified notices for clients to satisfy this notice requirement and they are linked below. Please note that while HWS does not need a copy of this notice, if you wish you may forward the signed document to HWS for maintenance in your permanent payroll files.
