New York-Specific Labor Law Posters
In addition to the federal labor law posters listed above, New York employers are also required to post the following mandatory state labor law posters. They must be displayed in a conspicuous and accessible place. Businesses that fail to post these notifications may be subject to penalties or fines.
- *New York Minimum Wage Poster: New York employers must post this labor law poster, titled Attention Miscellaneous Industry Employees, which describes employees’ rights to be paid the minimum wage and overtime pay. Currently, the minimum wage for employers in New York, New York City, Long Island, and Westchester County is $15.00 per hour. For the rest of the state, the minimum wage is $13.00 an hour as of December 31, 2021. The poster also describes requirements for tipped workers and explains the types of pay that employees may be entitled to under New York law.
- *New York Discrimination Notice: The New York State Human Rights Law prohibits discrimination and harassment based on race, creed, age, color, national origin, sexual orientation, military status, sex, pregnancy, gender identity or expression, disability, and marital status. As of February 8, 2020, all employers are covered by this law; previously, it was limited to employers with four or more employees). The poster explains this law and specifies that the law also prohibits discrimination based on religious practices, hairstyles associated with race, prior arrest or conviction record, genetic characteristics, familial status, pregnancy-related conditions, and domestic violence victim status. The law also extends to domestic workers, interns, and nonemployees, such as temporary or contract workers. The poster contains several other provisions and includes a Spanish translation.
- New York Correction Law Poster: Employers must post a copy of Article 23-A of the correction law relating to the employment of people with a criminal conviction. The law prohibits employers from discriminating against job applicants with a conviction unless there is a direct relationship between the criminal offense and the employment sought or unless the employment might post an unreasonable risk to individuals, the public, or property.
