Minimum Wage Details

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to pay a minimum wage, which is currently $7.25 per hour, to all non-exempt employees. Many states also have minimum wage laws. When an employee is subject to both state and federal minimum wage laws, the higher minimum wage applies. You can find your state’s minimum wage at the U.S. Department of Labor’s website.

Examples of Potential Minimum Wage Violations

  • Commission structures that do not ensure non-exempt employees are receiving at least minimum wage.
  • Work related expenditures that bring a worker’s pay below the minimum wage (e.g., uniforms, unreimbursed gas/mileage).
  • Employers that require employees to work off-the-clock, resulting in the employee's total compensation to fall below the minimum wage for all hours worked.
  • Employers that rely solely on tips from patrons to pay their employees.
