Minimum Wage & Overtime (FARE Grant)

All New York workers are entitled to receive at least an hourly minimum wage rate. The minimum wage rate varies depending on the location where work is performed, and is increasing every year until it reaches $15.00/hour in all areas of the state. Most workers must receive overtime pay after working 40 hours in a work week. Overtime pay is one-and-one-half times the regular pay rate.

Note: Agricultural workers currently earn overtime after working 60 hours in a work week, and for any hours worked on their designated day of rest.
