Updates From The NYC Hospitality Alliance
The Wage Lien Bill that the governor vetoed in 2020 is back in the New York State Senate and you only have a few weeks left to make your voice heard - CLICK HERE to take action and contact your Senator.
If you operate a restaurant, nightlife establishment, or other business in New York, contact your State Senator NOW and tell them you strongly OPPOSE Wage Lien Bill S2762, which would allow employees to file liens against the personal assets of business owners, their investors, and even frontline managers, solely upon the allegation of a wage dispute, NOT a judicial ruling of wrongdoing or a judgement. More details from NYC Alliance can be found here.
Mayor Adams announced on May 5 that he is backing legislation being introduced by Council Members Powers and Brannan that would suspend the city’s liquor license surcharge.

When the legislation is enacted, it will put on average $400-$500 back into the pockets of small business owners. Thank you to the Alliance for their important advocacy work! Click here for the full alert.
