Author: ADP Admin/Friday, November 1, 2019/Categories: Compliance Corner , State Compliance Update, Ohio

Ohio's minimum wage will increase to $8.70 per hour on January 1, 2020. With a few exceptions, all non-exempt employees in Ohio must be paid at least the minimum wage per hour.


The 2020 minimum wage rate applies to Ohio businesses with annual gross receipts of more than $319,000 per year. For employees of businesses that gross $319,000 or less per year, and for employees under the age of 16, the minimum wage will remain at $7.25 per hour.

Tipped Employees:

Beginning January 1, 2020, tipped employees must receive direct cash wages of at least $4.35 per hour. If the tipped employee's tips and direct cash wages fail to meet or exceed $8.70 per hour in 2020, the employer must make up the difference. Tipped employees are workers who customarily and regularly receive more than $30 per month in tips.

Compliance Recommendations:

Beginning January 1, 2020, Ohio employers must pay all non-exempt employees at least the minimum wage per hour. Ohio employers must also post the updated minimum wage poster.
