New NYC Law Requires Certain Employers to Provide Pre-Tax Transportation Benefits

Effective January 1, 2016, a new local law in New York City will require most employers with 20 or more full-time employees to offer full-time employees the opportunity to use pre-tax earnings to purchase qualified transportation fringe benefits — other than qualified parking — in accordance with federal law.

Under this law, a “full-time employee” is defined as an employee who works an average of 30 hours or more per week for such period of time as established by rule.
