Minimum wage rate increases Jan. 1

Minimum wage employees in Ohio will have something to look forward to in 2012.

Effective Jan. 1, 2012, the minimum wage for non-tipped employees will increase to $7.70 per hour (up $0.30 from current rate of $7.40) and for tipped employees the minimum wage will be $3.85 per hour (up $0.15 from the current rate of $3.70).

Departments do not need to adjust the employees to the new minimum wage rate in Work Force as that will be done automatically as part of the annual calendar year updates.

Departments can choose to adjust hourly rates that exceed the minimum wage rate but will be responsible for making that adjustment in Work Force at the departmental level.

Please note that there will be no central funding provided to departments for this minimum wage adjustment.
