The state minimum wage for most jobs will rise to $8.00 per hour effective Dec. 31, 2013, after the Legislature approved Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposal in late March. The minimum wage will increase twice more: to $8.75 on Dec. 31, 2014, and to $9.00 on Dec. 31, 2015.
The legislation preserves the special minimum wage for food service workers and tipped employees. Employers must pay tipped employees $5.00 per hour and allow a tip credit of a maximum of $2.25 per hour as long as wages and tips total at least $7.25 per hour, the current federal minimum wage.
Note: Plan now to ensure you're ready to handle the change when it occurs.
