Ohio’s Minimum Wage Increases on January 1, 2022

12.30.21 written by

Effective January 1, 2022, Ohio’s minimum wage will increase to $9.30 per hour for non-tipped employees and $4.05 per hour for tipped employees. The increase applies to employers with more than $297,000 in annual gross receipts. The change was triggered by the 2006 Amendment to the Ohio Constitution, which tied the state minimum wage to inflation, with automatic increases every January 1. In addition to paying employees the increased hourly rate, employers must conspicuously post the new 2022 Ohio Minimum Wage poster which can be found at the following link: https://www.com.ohio.gov/documents/dico_2022MinimumWageposter.pdf
