The Minnesota Department of Labor has released the 2020 Minimum Wage notice. The notice reflects the new 2020 wage rates. Employers subject to the Minnesota Fair Labor Standards Act are required to post the minimum wage notice in a conspicuous and accessible place in or about the premises where a covered employee is employed. (Minnesota Statutes, §177.31)
The commissioner of the Department of Labor and Industry is required to determine and announce the inflation-adjusted minimum wage rate each year by August 31. The 14-cent increase reflects a 1.41% increase in the price index since August 31. Effective January 1, 2020, the Minnesota minimum wage for large employers will rise to $10.00 per hour. A large employer is defined as any enterprise with an annual gross volume of sales made or business done of $500,000 or more. Small employers will be required to pay their employees a minimum wage of $8.15 per hour. The small employer minimum wage rate also applies to employees aged 17 or younger (youth wage), 18- or 19- year-old employees during the first 90 consecutive days of employment (training wage), and employees working under a J-1 Visa. These rates will not apply to work performed in the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, which have higher minimum wage rates.
