NEW YORK NAIL SALONS MUST POST BILL OF RIGHTS
In an effort to eliminate the exploitation of nail salon workers, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued a workers’ bill of rights that must be posted in plain view at every nail salon. The posters are printed in 10 languages and state the minimum wage and overtime requirements for both tipped and non-tipped workers. In addition to including a list of safety gear that salon owners must provide to workers, the poster also states what employers are not permitted to do, i.e., steal tips, deny meal breaks, require workers to pay for job training, etc. The poster can be found here.
