On July 16, 2015, Governor Cuomo signed a law requiring licensed appearance enhancement facilities that provide specialty nail salon services to post a bond to cover unpaid wages. Information on these requirements can be obtained via the Department of State Website.

To determine the amount of the wage bond you need to purchase, you may use the Department of State’s Wage Bond Calculator.

Enter the appropriate number of full time nail specialty operators you employ and the total number of hours that any part time nail operators work per week. The calculator will use this information to determine the wage bond amount needed to be purchased by your salon.

Fraud Alert: Please be cautious if you receive an unsolicited contact from a person offering to assist you in obtaining a wage bond. An unsolicited call requesting money may be a scam. Make sure to use a licensed insurance agent or broker and then contact that person directly. Use our secure portal to check to see if an agent or broker is licensed.

Below is a list of agents and brokers licensed in New York who state that they sell wage payment bonds.

A nail salon is not required to use someone from the list. There may be other licensed agents and brokers that will sell these bonds, as well as other authorized insurance companies that may issue them.

Note that the Department is not recommending anyone on the list nor guaranteeing the performance of anyone on the list.

If you have any questions or problems please email the Nail Salon Task Force at NYSDOL.ContactCenter@labor.ny.gov or call 1-888-469-7365.
