New York State Minimum Wage Increase
Effective Dec. 31, 2021, New York State (NYS) minimum wage will increase to $13.20/hour.
Employers in the Upper New York Conference, regardless of number of employees, must pay non-exempt employees minimum wage. Future increases will be determined by the NYS Director of Budget in consultation with the NYS Commissioner of Labor and will be announced on or before October 1 each year.
Non-exempt employees are entitled to overtime pay under the state and federal wage and hour laws. Overtime pay for non-exempt employees is calculated as time and one-half their regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 hours in a work week.
An updated NYS Minimum Wage poster must be posted at your work site for your employees by Dec. 31, 2021. Once the updated poster is available, the Conference office will post it on our Church Employer webpage under Employment Law Compliance and Posters.
The New York State minimum salary is also increasing from $937.50/week to $990.00/week or $51,480 per year. Click here to read more about this change.
