New year, new minimum-wage rates as of Jan. 1, 2020

 

December 18, 2019



Minnesota's minimum-wage rates will be adjusted for inflation beginning Jan. 1, 2020, to $10 an hour for large employers and $8.15 an hour for other state minimum wages.

As of Jan. 1, 2020:

• Large employers must pay at least $10 an hour when the employer's annual gross revenues are $500,000 or more.

• Small employers must pay at least $8.15 an hour when the employer's annual gross revenues are less than $500,000.

• The training wage rate, $8.15 an hour, may be paid to employees younger than 20 years of age for the first 90 consecutive days of employment.

• The youth wage rate, $8.15 an hour, may be paid to employees younger than 18 years of age.

For 2020, an estimated 206,000 jobs will pay the $10 or $8.15 state minimum-wage rates. These rates will not apply to work performed in the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, which have higher minimum-wage rates.

Employee notice updates may be required

New this year, as part of Minnesota's employee notice requirement, employers are required to provide each employee with a written notice of any change, before the change takes effect, including a change to the employee's rate of pay. Learn more about the employee notice requirement at http://www.dli.mn.gov/business/employment-practices/employee-notice.

Required poster updated, available

Minnesota law requires employers to display some state-mandated posters in a location where employees can easily see them. The posters are available at no cost and need to be updated only when Minnesota law changes. An updated minimum-wage rate poster, as well as other workplace posters, can be found at http://www.dli.mn.gov/about-department/workplace-posters.
