Getting Paid in New York
New York wage and hour law provides that all private sector employees be paid in a timely fashion (aside from those who are executive, administrative or professional employees and earn more than $600 per week):
- Manual employees–weekly and within 7 days after the work week ends
- Clerical and other employees–at least twice per month
- Commissioned salespersons–at least once per month and no later than the last day of the month during which the wages and commissions were earned
An employer must advise employees of their rate of pay and of their regular pay date at the time of hiring.
