The 2019 Minnesota Minimum Wage Poster Peel ‘N Post™ adheres to existing Minnesota All-On-One™ Labor Law Posters and Mobile Poster Paks™ to ensure required workplace posters are compliant with state law and posting requirements.
The 2019 Minnesota Minimum Wage poster provides the current minimum wage rates for large and small employers, as well as the training wage and youth wage. It also provides information on overtime pay and other employee rights.
Beginning in 2018, the Minnesota minimum wage rate will be adjusted each year for inflation as measured by the implicit price deflator, which provides information on price changes to all goods and services which are included in the gross domestic product (GDP).
The U.S. GDP’s increase from 2017-2018 results in the state minimum wage rising from $9.65 per hour to $9.86 per hour in 2019 for employees of large employers.
The minimum wage rate for small employers will rise from $7.87 per hour to $8.04 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.
The 2019 Minnesota minimum wage rates will take effect on January 1, 2019.
Every employer subject to the Minnesota Fair Labor Standards Act must post the 2019 Minnesota Minimum Wage Poster in a conspicuous and accessible place in or about the premises where a covered employee is employed (Minnesota Statutes, Sec. 177.31).
Employers are subject to the Act if they employ one or more covered employees. Most employees working in the state of Minnesota are covered by the Act, but there are some exemptions, such as specified agricultural and seasonal employees.
