Governor Cuomo will likely be facing a suit from New York nail salons over a new requirement for the salons to purchase wage bonds. The Korean American Nail Salon Association of New York and the Chinese Nail Salon Association of East America will bring the suit to courts claiming that the regulation is discriminatory to Asian salons, especially those with female owners. Many salon owners are first generation immigrants who the suit says cannot afford the bonds. The new state requirement says that wage bonds must be purchased if salons have unpaid wages, and was put in place in response to worker abuse reported in salons. (Crain’s)
