Cuomo announced a multi-pronged effort to reform the nail salon industry in New York State by correcting and preventing unlawful practices and unsafe working conditions. Governor Cuomo assembled a multi-agency Task Force consisting of representatives from the Department of Labor, Department of State, and Department of Health to implement the reforms which include a comprehensive package of legislation and new emergency regulations, administrative changes, and an outreach campaign to educate workers, businesses and the public.
