Minimum Wage and Unemployment notices must be posted in the workplace.

What’s Changing for Minimum Wage?

On January 1, 2020, Arizona employers are required to pay all employees—full-time, part-time, and temporary—an increased minimum wage rate of $12.00 per hour.

Employers must continue to pay employees who regularly receive tips $3.00 per hour less than the minimum wage, which is $9.00 per hour for the year 2020. As determined by Arizona’s Fair Wages and Healthy Families Act, employers must prove that their employees’ tips plus wages, for all hours worked, equal at least the new minimum wage rate of $12.00.

What’s Changing for Unemployment Insurance?

Instead of contacting their local office manager, individuals who need the Unemployment Insurance notice in an alternative format or who want additional information should now contact Arizona’s Unemployment Insurance Tax Office by calling the new phone number provided on the notice.
