Another state with a predetermined 2016 minimum wage increase is Rhode Island, and we are frequently checking for the new poster that will reflect the increase to $9.60 on January 1, 2016.
A Quick Refresh
As we discussed in our recent blog on the Rhode Island minimum wage increase, Rhode Island’s minimum wage has increased each year in the last three years. This year, the rate increases from $9.00 to $9.60. The effective date for the change is January 1, 2016, and we are watching carefully for the update to the poster.
Keep Ahead of Compliance
As I have mentioned previously, this is the season for many labor law poster changes, but these changes can happen year-round and with little announcement. The effort that goes into tracking changes and checking for poster updates, like for the Rhode Island minimum wage, is a lot of work. Save yourself the trouble of all of that effort by signing up for Poster Compliance Center’s OneSystem 1-Year Compliance Plan. You will be covered with a year of free automatic updates and can focus on other areas that need your attention.
