e-Alert: Mid-Year State and Federal Minimum Wage Updates

By June 1, 2023June 2nd, 2023No Comments

Many state and local minimum wage increases take effect on January 1st of each year; however, some changes occur in the latter half of the year.  We have summarized below those mid-year updates. If an employee is subject to more than one minimum wage requirement (such as federal, state, and local), employers must pay the rate that is most generous to the employee.

Effective June 1, 2023, the minimum wage will increase to $15.00 per hour.

Effective September 30, 2023, the minimum wage will increase to $12.00 per hour and $8.98 for tipped employees.

Effective July 1, 2023, the minimum wage will increase to $10.25 per hour for employees who receive health benefits and $11.25 per hour for employees who do not receive health benefits.

Effective July 1, 2023, the minimum wage rate will be adjusted to inflation based on Consumer Price Index (CPI).
