NEW: Minimum Wage
The new rate is $11.00. Also, a tip credit is being implemented that allows employers to count tips as a percentage of their minimum wage requirement, thus reducing the employer's share of the minimum wage, as long as the tips make up the difference. This applies as follows:
Hotel and Restaurant employees
$4.05 - Tip Credit
$6.95 - Employer's Share (difference between minimum wage and tip credit)
$2.04 - Tip Credit
$8.96 - Employer's Share (difference between minimum wage and tip credit)
Effective Date: January, 2018
