The Minimum Wage Act (Article 19 of the New York State Labor Law) requires that all employees in New York State receive at least the applicable hourly Minimum Wage rate. Regulations known as ‘Wage Orders’ set certain requirements that are industry-specific. The rates contained in these Wage Orders may differ from the general Minimum Wage rate.
