Staten Island, NY asked in Employment Law for New York

Q: I need to know what New York States requirements are for Pharmacy Technicians on a name tag

We’re being told by a manager that our first name isn’t enough- that they now want the first initial of our last name; from what I have researched that’s a NJ requirement. If someone can clarify.

A: Regardless of what the state law says if your employer requires the first initial of a last name on a name tag I don't see how you might object? Unless you don't want to work there any more.

Common laws live in New York. Those are unwritten laws such as Faithless Servant Doctrine, Master Servant Doctrine, and Duty of Loyalty to your employer. All good, all applicable, all enforceable regardless of written or not.
