This is just a reminder to all employers that the minimum wage rate will increase next week. Any time worked by your employees after 12:01 a.m. on July 24, 2009 must be paid at a minimum rate of $7.25 per hour.
This is the last increase from a federal law which began raising the minimum wage in $.70 increments from $5.15 per hour, which was the minimum rate prior to July 24, 2007.
If you have any belief that your employees are not entitled to minimum wage, or any questions about applying minimum wage laws, call an employment lawyer immediately. The consequences of failing to pay minimum wage properly can be very costly for a business.
