Ohio Announced Increase to 2018 Minimum Wage – Mandatory Posting Update



Ohio’s Division of Industrial Compliance has announced an increase to the state minimum wage for 2018.

Beginning January 1, 2018, employees who are not subject to tipped wages and who work for employers with gross income of over $305,000 will see their minimum wage increase from $8.15 to $8.30 per hour.  The state minimum wage does not apply to minors under the age of 16 or employees working for businesses whose gross wages are less than $305,000.  In those cases the federal minimum wage will apply.

Tipped employees will see a 7 cent increase to their minimum wage, increasing from $4.08 to $4.15 per hour.

This minimum wage increase carries a mandatory posting of the notice.  At The Labor Law Center we continually monitor local, state and federal posting requirements and will make them available as soon as we receive them.  The all in one Ohio Labor Law Poster is now available with the 2018 minimum wage notice included.

The Labor Law Center also offers a worry-free service to our customers through our Poster Service Plan with automatic replacements.  What this means is that we monitor the state and federal postings and automatically send you updates when they are released.  It is that simple!

We also offer our clients our newly updated Education Center.  If you are new to labor law compliance or just wanting to keep up with the latest news and changes as they come out, this is the place to bookmark and visit regularly.
