The 2019 Ohio Minimum Wage poster displays the current minimum wage rates for non-tipped and tipped employees, as well as information on overtime, recordkeeping, the sub-minimum wage rate, and individuals who are exempt from the minimum wage.
The Ohio minimum wage is adjusted each year according to increases in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The CPI’s 2.9 percent increase between 2017-2018 results in the state minimum wage rising from $8.30 to $8.55 per hour for non-tipped employees, and from $4.15 to $4.30 per hour for tipped employees. The minimum wage is recalculated yearly.
The 2019 Ohio minimum wage rate will take effect on January 1, 2019.
Every employer subject to the Ohio Minimum Fair Wage Standards is required to post the 2019 Ohio Minimum Wage poster in a conspicuous or accessible place in or about the premises where any person subject thereto is employed (Ohio Revised Code, 4111.09).
Employers with annual gross receipts of less than $314,000 are subject to the federal minimum wage rate, as are employees under 16 years of age.
