Update to Minimum Wage effective December 31, 2015

New York State approved an increase to minimum wage over the federal hourly limit of $8.75. Effective December 31, 2015, the New York State minimum wage increased to $9.00 per hour, and the University has acted to be in compliance with this rate for all hourly paid employees. The rates have been automatically updated. As hourly paid employees are on a bi-weekly payroll lag, this change impacted the January 31, 2016 paycheck.  If you have any questions about this change or how your student employees will be affected, please reach out to Compensation within HR (Jim Marshall or Ann Courtien). 

Effective June 1st, 2015, all student employment will move over to Pace Human Resources, Staffing & Recruitment department.  All hiring managers interested in hiring student workers or student interns must post their positions in the PeopleAdmin system.  If you are a STUDENT interested in student employment or student internships, please visit the Pace Career website at   If you have any questions, please contact Staffing and Recruitment at 914-923-2730.
