Hawaii released the revised Wage and Hour Laws notice required for all Hawaii employers. The posting reflects the Bill (SB 2609) that Governor Neil Abercrombie signed into law increasing the minimum wage rate in phases to $10.10 by 2018. The final measure also increases the tip credit to 50 cents per hour beginning January 1, 2015, and 75 cents per hour beginning on January 1, 2016.
Hawaii Minimum Wage Increase in Phases (January 1 of each year)
- 2015: $7.75
- 2016: $8.50
- 2017: $9.25
- 2018: $10.10
Hawaii’s minimum wage had stagnated at $7.25 per hour since 2007. At that level, Hawaii’s minimum wage workers who work full time would earn $15,080 per year. Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 will give minimum wage workers a $6,000 per year income boost.

The revised Hawaii minimum wage notice is included on the GovDocs Hawaii State-on-One poster, Hawaii Combined poster, and in PDF format – along with other postings required for employers in Hawaii. See Required Hawaii Workplace Postings Here.
