Employers Reminded of New Minimum Wages Laws
Gov. Andrew Cuomo is warning employers that they can face fines, charges and civil or even criminal punishment for failing to comply with the state's minimum wage laws.
 
The $8 minimum went into effect Dec. 31 and will increase to $8.75 at the end of the year and $9 at the end of 2015.
 
Cuomo said Friday that 374 cases have been opened based on complaints from employees about minimum wage and overtime violations. In 19 of those cases, where the only complaint was failure to pay the new minimum wage, the Department of Labor made contact with the employer to correct the error.
 
Workers looking to file a complaint or a business in need of assistance should call 1-800-469-7365 or email LSAsk@labor.ny.gov.
