Arizona has increased its minimum wage from $6.90 per hour to $7.25 per hour effective Jan. 1, 2009.

The new minimum wage, which is adjusted every January 1 by any increase in the cost of living, is included in a mandatory Arizona labor law poster issued by the Industrial Commission of Arizona.

Arizona has also revised its mandatory Unemployment Insurance poster to include a new section stating that the Arizona Department of Economic Security prohibits discrimination. The poster also includes a new TTY/TDD phone number for the hearing impaired.

The revised Arizona labor law poster is now available at Poster Compliance Center, www.postercompliance.com.
