New York Rings in New Year with Wage & Hour Presents: A Preview of Upcoming Changes

    While the federal minimum wage for non-exempt employees has remained unchanged at $7.25 per hour since 2009, and the federal salary level for exempt employees has been stymied in litigation and rulemaking since 2014, New York State has forged ahead on the wage and hour front for 2018. The state has increased the minimum wage for non-exempt employees and the salary level for exempt employees, modified tip credit amounts available to tipped employees, and imposed other changes to wage credits.

    And other changes are afoot, too.  To read more about what's on the wage and hour front in 2018 for employers in New York State, please click here to read the full article by Jackson Lewis attorneys Jeff Brecher, Felice Ekelman, Rich Greenberg, Craig Roberts, and Noel Tripp.
