Minimum Wage

Bronson Lipsky represents workers to recover their lawful minimum wage in class and collective action suits.

Federal and state laws require employers to pay their employees a minimum wage. Often times, the minimum wage under federal law differs from the state’s law. For example, $7.25 is the federal minimum wage. The minimum wage in New York depends upon where the business is located, the size of the business and the nature of the business.

If the employer is based in New York City and has 11 or more employees, the minimum wage is $11.00.  If the employer is based in New York City and has 10 or fewer employees, the minimum wage is $10.50.

If the employer is based in Long Island or Westchester, the minimum wage is $10.00 – regardless of employees.

If the employer is located elsewhere, the minimum wage is $9.70.

If you work at a fast food restaurant in New York City, the minimum wage is $12.00 and $10.75 for the rest of the state. A “fast food restaurant” is any restaurant that is part of a chain of 30 or more locations, which includes individually owned locations that are associated with a  brand that has 30 ore more locations nationwide.
