  • Wage Board & Tip Credit-What you Need to Know Right Now

    The stakes are high. The Commissioner of the NYS Department of Labor has given the Wage Board his directive to focus on the Tip Credit.

    The most significant issue before the Wage Board is whether the Tip Credit should be modified and if so, by how much. Clearly, an elimination of the Tip Credit would have an enormous financial impact on the NYC restaurant industry.

    As reported, The Alliance began preparing for the Wage Board many months ago by disseminating memos outlining our positions and suggestions to key political and business leaders. The Alliance will also testify at the upcoming hearing representing the voice of our industry.

    The Alliance will release additional information about the New York City public hearing that has been scheduled for Monday, October 20th and what you as a restaurant or nightlife operator can do. Click here for more information on the Wage Board and to read our full alert ›

  • Reduced Restaurant Fines & Task Force Announced

    Did you read the article in Crain's NY, "City Hall to Create Task Force Aimed at Lowering Small Biz Fines" where the following was quoted:

    "Reducing fines has been a major agenda for our alliance," said Andrew Rigie, executive director of the New York City Hospitality Alliance. "We look forward to working with the administration on reducing fines while protecting the public. Hopefully these reforms will be sweeping enough to provide the restaurant industry with the relief from fines that it really needs." Click here to find out more and read the full article! ›

  • NYS Government Affairs Update: Labor, Liquor Licenses & More

    End of Session Update:

    The Alliance brings the interests of NYC restaurant and nightlife operators to the New York State Capitol. Our alert provides an "end of session" update on some of the key issues The Alliance was involved with at the NYS Legislature. These included the following:

    - The Annual Wage Reporting Requirement (Repeal passed)
    - Hospitality Industry Employee Hours (Did not pass)
    - Mandatory gratuities (Did not pass)

    Overall we believe it was a productive session for The Alliance in Albany, as we were at the table for discussions on a wide range of labor, liquor law and economic development issues and we were successful in making the voice of our members heard.
