A revised Ohio labor law poster issued by the Ohio Department of Commerce includes an increase in the state’s minimum wage from $7 per hour to $7.30 per hour effective Jan 1, 2009.
Ohio’s minimum wage is adjusted for inflation every January 1.
The mandatory minimum wage poster also includes an increase for tipped employees – from a minimum wage of $3.50 per hour to $3.65 per hour.
Employers who gross less than $267,000 annually shall pay no less than the current federal minimum wage of $6.55 per hour (to increase to $7.25 per hour on July 24, 2009), according to the revised poster. Those rates are now included in the “Non-Tipped Employees” section of the minimum wage poster.
The previous Ohio labor law poster said employers who gross less than $255,000 annually were required to pay the current federal minimum wage rate.
