New Jersey and New York Increase Minimum Wage

Print

Effective January 1, 2014, the minimum hourly wage for non-exempt employees increased in both New Jersey and New York.  In New Jersey, the minimum wage increased from $7.25 to $8.25 per hour.  In New York, the minimum wage increased from $7.25 to $8.00 per hour.  Employers need to be aware of these changes and must pay their non-exempt employees no less than that minimum hourly wage for each regular hour worked.
