NY Lab L § 656 (2012) What's This?
 
    §  656.  Action by commissioner upon wage board report.  When the wage
  board submits its report and recommendations to  the  commissioner,  the
  commissioner  shall  forthwith  file  them  with  the  secretary  of the
  department. Within five days of their receipt,  the  commissioner  shall
  publish  a  notice  of such filing in at least ten newspapers of general
  circulation  in  the  state.  Any   objections   to   the   report   and
  recommendations shall be filed with the commissioner within fifteen days
  after   such   publication.   The  commissioner  may,  if  he  deems  it
  appropriate, order oral argument, which shall be  scheduled  before  the
  commissioner,  or such representative as he may designate, on five days'
  notice to the persons who  have  filed  objections  to  the  report  and
  recommendations.   Whether  or  not  oral  argument  is  scheduled,  the
  commissioner shall by order accept or  reject  the  board's  report  and
  recommendations  within  forty-five days after filing with the secretary
  of the department.  The  commissioner  may  by  such  order  modify  the
  regulations  recommended  by  the  board. Such order of the commissioner
  shall become effective thirty days  after  publication,  in  the  manner
  prescribed  in this section, of a notice of such order. The commissioner
  may, within such forty-five days, confer with the wage board, which  may
  make  such  changes in its report or recommendations as it may deem fit.
  The commissioner also may,  within  such  forty-five  days,  remand  the
  matter to the board for such further proceeding as he may direct.
