Oregon employers, it’s that time again! As spring turns into summer, this is your seasonal reminder to spring clean your labor law posters and ensure that the updated 2019 Oregon Minimum Wage Rates Poster is conspicuously posted in the workplace.
Oregon ‘s minimum wage law establishes a series of scheduled increases to the state minimum wage rates every July 1. With June just beginning, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries has updated the mandatory Oregon minimum wage poster with rates effective July 1, 2019, giving employers ample time to prepare locations in Oregon for the upcoming wage increase.
