Time Is Money: A Quick Wage-Hour Tip on … Did You Remember to Make Necessary Changes to Comply with New 2022 State and Local Wage-Hour Laws?

It’s a new year and we’re all getting back into the swing of things, but if you’re an employer you certainly do not want to forget to update your employee payroll to comply with new minimum wage and exempt salary thresholds. These rates increased once clocks struck midnight and failing to comply could mean serious consequences for your company. Thankfully Michael Kun put together this handy post which includes several charts comparing the 2021 rates to the 2022 rates in all of the states and localities that saw changes. This post serves as a friendly reminder to employers about these updated laws and also serves as a useful tool if you do still need to make these changes. All around, a great post to kick off 2022.
