The Division of Labor & Worker Safety of the Ohio Department of Commerce announced recently that, effective January 1, 2009, the minimum wage for the state of Ohio will increase to $7.30 per hour for non-tipped employees and $3.50 for tipped employees. The minimum wage will apply to employers who gross more than $267,000 per year. As a result of a constitutional amendment that passed in 2006 an adjustment to the minimum wage must be applied on January 1 of each year. The adjustment is tied to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for urban wage earners and clerical workers for the 12-month period prior to September. The 4.6% increase in the CPI will result in an increase of $0.30 for 2009. Contact Vision Payroll if you have any questions on the Ohio minimum wage increase or visit our Minimum Wage Chart.
