A revised federal minimum wage poster, reflecting recently enacted minimum wage increases, is now available free of charge on the Department of Labor’s Web site (www.dol.gov/esa/regs/compliance/posters/flsa.htm). Every employer of employees subject to the Fair Labor Standard Act’s minimum wage provisions must post, and keep posted, a notice explaining the law in a conspicuous and visible place in all of their establishments.

The new federal minimum wage for covered nonexempt employees is $5.85 per hour, effective July 24, 2007. The minimum wage increases to $6.55 per hour effective July 24, 2008; and $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009.
