Minnesota's new minimum-wage poster is online, law changes Aug. 1, 2014

 

Minnesota's new minimum-wage poster is now online and ready to download at www.dli.mn.gov/Posters. The poster’s minimum-wage rates are in effect from Aug. 1, 2014, to July 31, 2015.

Minnesota law requires employers to display five state-mandated posters in a physical location where employees can easily see them. The minimum-wage poster needs to be updated at Minnesota workplaces. The other four mandated posters have not changed and do not need to be replaced (age discrimination, safety and health on the job, unemployment and workers’ compensation).

There is no cost for posters provided by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI). They can be obtained online or ordered from DLI’s website. Posters are designed to fit and print on standard 8.5" x 11" paper.

DLI will translate the minimum-wage poster into Hmong, Somali and Spanish and add those posters online in early August.

Minnesota’s minimum-wage rates will change in August 2015 and 2016. The minimum-wage poster will be updated in 2015 and 2016 to reflect those future rates.

As of Aug. 1, 2014

  • Large employers must pay at least $8 an hour. This applies to any enterprise with an annual gross dollar volume of sales made or business done of $500,000 or more.
  • Small employers must pay at least $6.50 an hour. This applies to any enterprise with an annual gross volume of sales made or business done of less than $500,000.
