Testimony in support of SB2123- An Act Relating to Payment of Wages

Last updated: March 19, 2024

The Economic Progress Institute supports Senator Acosta’s SB2123, which requires employers to furnish items and conditions of employment and a pay stub explaining how wages were calculated/reasons for deductions and allows the employee to file a court action against their employer for violation. Being paid without a pay stub makes it all too easy for errors or even wage theft to go unnoticed and unchecked.

This bill would provide clarity and transparency for employers and workers and encourage honest business practices. The Economic Progress Institute urges passage of SB2123.
