NYS Dept. of Labor Issues Wage Order Including Changes - Enforcement Begins March 1, 2011


Employers in the hospitality and restaurant industries need to review and modify their current wage and hour policies on a host of issues covered in the New York State Department of Labor’s latest Wage Order. The Wage Order establishes rules for tipped credit minimum wage, tip pooling, tip sharing, recordkeeping, private event contracts, spread of hours pay, uniform allowances exemptions, and related practices. Although the Order became effective January 1, 2011, the Department of Labor will not begin enforcement of the Order until March 1, 2011.
