New York state’s minimum wage rates (which vary by geographical area) increased Dec. 31, 2016, as follows:

- New York City Small Employers (1-10 employees): $10.50
- Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester Counties: $10

As a result, the state updated its general Miscellaneous Industry Minimum Wage Information posting, as well as added new industry-specific required postings:
- Building and Service Industry Minimum Wage
- Hospitality Industry Minimum Wage
- Apparel Industry Minimum Wage
Posting and Notice Requirements
These minimum wage postings, also effective Dec. 31, 2016, are available now and must be displayed in a conspicuous place for employees. As noted, the individual posting requirements vary based on industry.
