Greetings, Nizac, and welcome.

<<I started the year working for employer A and contributed $2K to a 401(k). I'm now working at employer B. Am I responsible for ensuring that my contributions to this second 401(k) do not exceed $8K?>>

Yes, you are responsible for ensuring your combined contributions to both 401k plans do not exceed $10K in the aggregate. As others have pointed out, sometimes a new employer will help you do that, but most don't. Therefore, you have to stay alert and ensure your current contributions cease at $8K. Things can get messy if you permit too much to be contributed.
