Update to Minimum Wage effective December 31, 2014

New York State approved an increase to minimum wage over the federal hourly limit of $8. Effective December 31, 2014, the New York State minimum wage increased to $8.75 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, 2015 paycheck.  If you have any questions about this change or how your student employees will be affected, please reach out to the Compensation department.
