As we reported back in October, on December 31, 2017, the minimum wage in New York will increase by varying amounts, depending on an employer’s location.
The New York Department of Labor has just released the Miscellaneous Industry Employees’ minimum wage notice, which has a revision date of 12/17. The notice reflects different hourly wage rates for the following regions, effective 12/31/17 through 12/30/18:
- New York City

Our team is hard at work on the New York poster, which should soon be on its way to our clients.
