Minimum Wage To Increase January 1st
December 31, 2014
Beginning Friday, January 1, Ohio’s minimum wage will increase to $8.10 an hour.
The Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA) contains minimum wage provisions which most employers in the U.S. are required to pay. Currently that rate is $7.25/hour. However, many states have adopted minimum wage rates higher than the federal rate, including Ohio.
When state rates and the federal rate are different, employers must pay their employees the higher rate. Employers should review their employees’ pay rates to ensure they are paying the correct minimum wage. Also, update minimum wage poster notices if necessary to be in compliance with wage and hour regulations.
