Minimum wage increase in Minneapolis effective January 1, 2018

Minneapolis’s ordinance raising the minimum wage recently cleared a major court challenge. On Monday, December 11, 2017, the Hennepin County District Court denied a motion by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce and other entities that sought to prevent the ordinance from taking effect. This means that the ordinance will go into effect on January 1, 2018, although the Chamber may continue to litigate the issue.

On January 1, large employers (those with 100 or more employees) will pay $10.00 per hour to employees working in Minneapolis. On July 1, 2018, the minimum wage will increase again ($11.25 for large employers; $10.25 for all others).

If you are a covered employer within Minneapolis, you must hang this notice poster in your breakroom or employee bulletin board starting January 1, 2018.

We will continue to follow these issues and update you with material developments. Please let us know if you have any questions about Minneapolis’s minimum wage ordinance, whether your business is a covered employer, or any other labor or employment issue.
