Update to Minimum Wage Effective December 31, 2019

Effective December 31, 2019, the New York State minimum wage will increase to $13.00 per hour in Westchester. 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 will be impacted on the January 31, 2020 paycheck. If you have any questions about this change or how your student or part-time staff employees were/will be affected, please reach out to either Ann Heitmann or Beth Buls.
