2022 New York State Minimum Wage Rates Become Effective On Dec. 31, 2021

On Sept. 22, 2021, the New York Department of Labor (NYDOL) announced the state’s two minimum wage rates will increase on Dec. 31, 2021.

The rate for Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester counties will increase as scheduled to $15 per hour. The rate for the remainder of the state will increase to $13.20 per hour.

As a reminder, the minimum wage rate for the city of New York and fast food workers throughout the state is $15 per hour.

2022 New York State Minimum Wage for Tipped Employees

New York state law allows employers in all industries (except for building service) to satisfy the minimum wage by combining a “cash wage” paid by the employer with a credit or allowance for tips that the employee receives from customers.

The 2022 minimum wage does not change the amount of tip credit. Employers must continue to ensure that their employees’ cash wages and tips enable them to receive wages at or above the applicable minimum wage rate.

Cash wages and tip credits in New York state depend on location and industry. Employers should review the information published by the NYDOL for more information.
