July 2020 Minimum Wage Changes Take Effect

July 21, 2020

Despite COVID-19 disruption, scheduled July minimum wage rate increases were not postponed. There was an average increase of just under $1/hour across all affected jurisdictions. Check your records to ensure these increases, particularly the city/county increases, were processed.

Minimum wage increases will have an impact on your salaried staff, too. Minimum salary (exempt) pay thresholds are a product of the minimum wage.

The following changes were effective July 1, 2020.

Statewide minimum wage increases in:

  • Maryland
  • Illinois
  • Oregon
  • Washington DC
  • Nevada

At least 38 city/county minimum wage increases, including:

  • Los Angeles
  • San Francisco
  • Chicago
  • Cook County, IL
  • Minneapolis
  • Saint Paul
  • Montgomery County, MD

Stay on your toes for future increases: payroll changes can happen quarterly!
