Like many states throughout the US, the State of New York is raising there minimum wage for 2017. This increase is part of a series of smaller increases that will ultimately lead to a $15 minimum wage as planned by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. This increase has also included a new required Minimum Wage workplace poster for employer compliance (you can find that HERE)
There have been New York state minimum wage increases in the past, but this one marks the first time that a separate minimum wage will be in effect for different areas of the state as well as different sizes of employers. So what exactly is the minimum wage? It can be a little tricky, so it has been outlined below:
-For Employers in New York City with 10 employees or less the new Minimum Wage is $10.50 per hour, overtime after 40 hours $15.75 per hour.
-For Employers in New York City with 11 or more employees the new Minimum Wage is $11.00 per hour, overtime after 40 hours $16.50 per hour
-For Employers in Long Island and Westchester County the new Minimum Wage is $10.00 per hour, overtime after 40 hours $15.00
-For Employers in the remainder of New York State the new Minimum Wage is $9.70 per hour, overtime after 40 hours $14.55
These changes are all reflected on the required State Minimum Wage Poster. Employers are required to post this document among many other State and Federal documents in plain view for employees.
