Federal Minimum Wage Alert!

As I advised previously, the Federal Minimum Wage will increase from $6.55 per hour to $7.25 per hour, effective July 24, 2009. Typically, where a State minimum wage conflicts with the Federal minimum wage, employers are required to pay the higher of the two hourly wage rates. Employers confronting such a situation may wish to consult with labor counsel in their State.
