New York Issues Final Minimum Wage Regulations and Related FAQs

    The New York State Department of Labor has adopted regulations implementing increases to the state minimum wage, identified required salary levels for exclusions from overtime pay for executive and administrative employees, and issued Frequently Asked Questions for employers.
