Wage Bond FAQs for NY Nail Salon Owners

In the wake of a two-part exposé in the New York Times earlier this summer detailing the exploitation of New York nail salon workers, Gov. Cuomo has quickly instated new regulations for their protection. Effective October 6, nail salon owners are required to post a wage bond, ensuring that their employees will be paid fairly. The wage bond mandate has been met with opposition and resistance from nail salon owners. Their main concerns are where to purchase the bond, how much it will cost and why they need it.
