Minimum Wage Increase

In 2017, several states have raised (or will do so in the coming year) their state’s minimum wage requirement (AK, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, HI, ME, MD, MA, MI, MO, MT, NJ, NY, OH, OR, RI, SD, VT, and WA). Keep in mind, that your city or other local wage requirements may be higher than your state or federal minimum wage.

To review your state’s minimum wage, please visit the Department of Labor’s website.

We encourage you to review your local and state resources to ensure your organization is up-to-date on any new pay, employment law, and/or HR-related regulations that have been or will be enacted in 2017. For this information, please visit the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division’s website regarding State Labor Laws.
