Ohio Minimum Wage Increases by $.10, Effective January 1, 2014


A Human Resources E-Alert

Effective January 1, 2014, the Ohio minimum wage will increase by 10 cents, from $7.85 per hour to $7.95 per hour. The Ohio minimum wage for “tipped employees” will increase from $3.93 per hour to $3.98 per hour, plus tips.

If you are an Ohio employer with annual gross receipts of more than $292,000 (previously $288,000), you must pay the Ohio minimum wage. If you are an Ohio employer and your annual gross receipts are $292,000 or less, then Ohio law requires you to pay the federal minimum wage, which is currently $7.25 per hour (unchanged since July 2009).

The above increases are the result of the amendment to Ohio’s Constitution passed by Ohio voters in 2006, which tied Ohio’s minimum wage to the rate of inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index.
