The new rate effective January 1, 2020 is $9.65 per hour.
Employees who regularly receive tips may be paid $3.67 per hour as long as that person is claiming at least $5.98 in tips per hour.
The law also allows a Michigan employer to pay minor employees (aged 16-18) $8.20 per hour after the first 90 days.
If your pay period includes January 1, 2020, the law allows you to pay the lower rate through December 31. If you choose to do this we ask that you let us know ahead of time as those adjustments will take time and are not automatic. If you choose not to split the payroll into two minimum wage rates, the new rate will be included for the entire payroll ending at the beginning of January.
