Ohioís Minimum Wage to Increase in 2020

Ohioís minimum wage is scheduled to increase on Jan. 1, 2020, to $8.70
per hour for non-tipped employees and $4.35 per hour for tipped employees.
The minimum wage will apply to employees of businesses with annual gross
receipts of more than $319,000 per year.

The current 2019 Ohio minimum wage is $8.55 per hour for non-tipped
employees and $4.30 for tipped employees. The 2019 Ohio minimum wage
applies to employees of businesses with annual gross receipts of more than
$314,000 per year.

The Constitutional Amendment (II-34a) passed by Ohio voters in November
2006 states that Ohioís minimum wage shall increase on Jan. 1 of each
year by the rate of inflation. The state minimum wage is tied to the
Consumer Price Index (CPI-W) for urban wage earners and clerical workers
for the 12-month period prior to September. This CPI-W index increased by
1.5 percent over the 12-month period from Sept. 1, 2018, to Aug. 31, 2019.
The Constitutional Amendment [
1] is available online.

For employees at smaller companies with annual gross receipts of $319,000
or less per year after Jan. 1, 2020, and for 14 and 15-year-olds, the state
minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. For these employees, the state wage is tied
to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, which requires an act of
Congress and the Presidentís signature to change.

Employers can access the 2020 Minimum Wage poster for display in their
places of business from the Departmentís website.
